German Speaking Jesuit Missionaries as Founders of Sonora, Mexico and Southern Arizona

It is commonly assumed that the early history of the Pimeria Alta, currently Sonora, Mexico and southern Arizona, was determined by Spanish colonizers. In reality, the Jesuit order, perhaps best represented by Padre Eusebio Kino, can be credited with havng had the greatest impact on the entire region. A surprisingly large number of Kino's successors hailed from German speaking lands and left a huge impact on the early history of the Southwest. One of these was Swiss missionary Philipp Segesser, whose insightful and enlightening correspndences have only recently been translated into English.

Gain insight into the global role which the Jesuits played, and how important the Sonoran province was for the international Jesuit Order.

This Arizona Humanities Council sponsored program is presented by Dr. Albrecht Classen, Distinguished Professor of German Studies at the University of Arizona.
