Mary in Catholic Education

Location: Marian Library Gallery
Cost: Free

The Society of Mary opened its first school in 1819 in Bordeaux, France, and education continues to be a key element of the Marianist mission. The Blessed Virgin Mary is an integral component of this educational culture as both a subject of teaching and an exemplar for educators. In this exhibit, teacher education students at the University of Dayton use materials from the Marian Library’s collections to explore how Catholic ideals have been shared with different audiences through various media. From Catholic comic books to an 18th-century primer and Marianist manga, visit to learn more about Mary across educational genres and cultures.

Welcoming UD classes and groups, school field trips and the general public. Please contact us prior to group visits so we can supply helpful information.
