Dr. Stuart MCMANUS of the Stevanovich Institute on the Formation of Knowledge, University of Chicago, was invited by the Department to present a lecture to the Department’s postgraduate students.
In this seminar, Dr. MCMANUS examined that the orators and preachers who travelled across Asia, Africa and the Americas by riding on the coattails of European conquistadors and merchants. They relied heavily on the Classical Rhetorical Tradition, the persuasive techniques developed in Greece and Rome, to bolster European imperial and evangelisation, especially the Jesuits.
