Books in Honor of MLK Jr. Day from Notre Dame Press

Author: Notre Dame Press News

Martin Luther King Jr. Day

Martin Luther King Jr. Day on Jan. 18, 2021, is the 26th anniversary of the day of service that celebrates the civil rights leader's life and legacy. While designated as a national day of service to encourage all Americans to volunteer to improve their communities, it is also used as a day to examine King’s work and to express hope that this nation can be better if we all come together and work towards making it a better place. Poverty, unemployment, voting rights, and racial disparities in education are still issues today, as they were when MLK fought for racial equity five decades ago. Today, the United States still needs the civil rights movement. The University of Notre Dame Press is proud to publish two profoundly moving books this spring that look at the history of the civil rights movement and a great abolitionist and archivist of the Underground Railroad.…

New book charts the rise and fall of John Zahm, C.S.C., vice president of Notre Dame

Author: Notre Dame Press News

Faith and Science at Notre Dame

In this recently published book, Faith and Science at Notre Dame: John Zahm, Evolution, and the Catholic Church, John P. Slattery (ND '17 Ph.D.) tells a new and fuller story of the Reverend John Augustine Zahm, C.S.C., (1851–1921) and his quest to prove the compatibility of late nineteenth-century evolutionary science and Roman Catholicism. Zahm was a Holy Cross priest, author, South American explorer, and a science professor and vice president at the University of Notre Dame, the latter at the age of twenty-five. Through his scientific writings, Zahm argued that Roman Catholicism was fully compatible with an evolutionary view of biological systems. Ultimately Zahm’s ideas were not accepted in his lifetime and he was prohibited from discussing evolution and Catholicism, although he remained an active priest for more than two decades after his censure. …
