Loyola University New Orleans Presents Lecture in Indian Religion

Loyola press release - February 26, 1999

(New Orleans)—Loyola University New Orleans will present "The Emotions of Devotion in Indian Religion" by Timothy Cahill, Loyola’s visiting assistant professor of religious studies, as part of its annual Yamauchi Lectures in Religion on Sunday, March 14 at 7:30 p.m. in Nunemaker Auditorium of Monroe Hall on Loyola’s main campus, 6363 St. Charles Ave.

Cahill’s interest in India was spurred by three years of study at Andhra University in south India. After completing diplomas in Telugu and Sanskrit, he began graduate work in Indology with an emphasis on grammar, religious poetry and the formation of Hindu self-consciousness.

The Yamauchi Lectures is named in memory of the Rev. H. James Yamauchi, S.J., a former chair of Loyola’ Department of Religious Studies who taught at Loyola from 1956 to 1966. The Graduate and Undergraduate Department of Religious Studies at Loyola sponsor the Yamauchi Lectures in Religion series. The lecture is free and open to the public.
