Bound to Canada's early modern history are the apostolic labours of the Jesuit missionaries who ministered to both a vast number of First Nations peoples and a fledgling community or French settlers. Their efforts, chronicled in the Jesuit Relations, will come to life in this intensive five-day course taught, in situ, at the heart of the former Wendat (Huron) Nation (present day Martyrs' Shrine). From this location, students will begin an experiential journey, passing through the pages of the Relations, into world-class reconstructed historical sites, that together will create the space for examining how their religious world view shaped the missionaries' understanding of the 'New World', First Nations Cultures, and evangelisation during the earliest period in Canada's ecclesiastical history.
