Franciscan Pilgrims' Progress

Pilgrims - Susan Jennifer Ellen

Five days into our time in Assisi, the pilgrims from Marian University have all experienced in new ways what our Franciscan sponsorship values mean—for us as individuals and for the Marian community.

Prayer has been a constant for us. Daily Eucharist—whether in small chapels, large basilicas or our hotel--has become the centering experience of our journey. More than half of us are not Catholic, but this most significant of all Catholic rituals has embraced all and engaged us in the formation of a community of individuals renewed in our commitment to the mission of Marian University—to be a great Catholic university dedicated to excellent teaching and learning in the Franciscan and liberal arts tradition.

Reverence for the dignity of every individual stands out as the first, and perhaps most treasured, Franciscan value. Meeting Francis and Clare as we have done—intimately and in amazing detail—has shown us how different they were from each other and from us. But we have also witnessed how much they cared for each other and for others, especially the poor and the sick, the outcast and the vulnerable. Through their eyes we see that every man and woman is made in God’s image, a wonder to behold, no matter how different from us. Marian’s commitment to serve a diverse student body has been reaffirmed as an incredibly important feature of who we are and what we stand for as a Catholic Franciscan community...read more

The Ethics of Managing Cultural Property in the Museum Setting by Kathryn Haigh

A museum encounters numerous ethical dilemmas when collecting cultural property. How do you guarantee that an antiquity was legally excavated and exported from its country of modern discovery? How do you prove ownership when an auction house refuses to verify that the seller has clear title? Should a museum acquire a European painting that has a gap in its provenance and was in Europe during the Nazi War Era?

Over the last 100 years museums have dramatically changed the way they collect archaeological material and antiquities, European paintings, and Native American objects. This evolution in collecting is largely influenced by external forces such as international conventions, federal legislation in the United States, and best practice as dictated by the museum field. Kathryn Haigh will explore these issues and more based on her experience as a museum administrator and collection manager over the last two decades.
