Jesuits On The American Frontier

"Crossing the Divide: Jesuits on the American Frontier" contains extremely accurate documentation of the new world this group of Jesuits entered as they crossed cultural, linguistic and religious divides. The exhibition displays dictionaries of Native-American languages, as well as extremely accurate maps and detailed journals. Of significant importance are the sketches and water colors of Nicholas Point, S.J., and the Moses Linton album, a chronicle of the work and travels of Pierre De Smet, S.J. This album is on display for the first time.
