Publisher's Description

From the conquistadores in Central and South America to the Jesuits in China, Edmondo Lupieri traces the consequences of European war and conquest for global cultural identities from the age of exploration to the present. In the Name of God exposes the economic, political, and religious justifications and motivations behind the European conquests and uncovers some of the historical roots of genocide, racism, and "just war."

Lupieri's animated and comprehensive historical-sociological study masterfully weaves together a tapestry of ideas, individuals, and people groups, linking them throughout to present-day realities in often surprising ways. Unflinchingly critical, Lupieri describes how European-indigenous encounters have shaped Christianity -- and the world -- irrevocably.

Author Bio

Edmondo Lupieri holds the John Cardinal Cody Chair of Theology at Loyola University Chicago, where he teaches New Testament and Early Christianity. The series editor of Italian Texts and Studies on Religion and Society, he has also written The Mandaea

Editorial Reviews

Catholic Book Review
"Highly recommended for those interested in the history of global expansion, or the spread of Christianity."
 
Reviews in Religion & Theology
"The magnitude of Edmundo Lupieri’s In the Name of God is stunning. . . .  It is a breathtaking look at the making of global Christianity. . . .  A substantial historical-sociological study. It is also a grand story built on smaller stories. It is an eclectic book, a densely packed book, a wide-ranging book, full of compelling images and ideas."
 
Choice(American Library Association)
"Lupieri narrates a fascinating, if sometime sordid, story of Christianity’s spread around the world. . . . This lucidly written volume will help people see the various roles religion played over time. . . .  This is a useful resource for those interested in Christianity’s presence in various global locations. Recommended."
