    Entangled History and the Scholarly Concept of Enlightenment.Jeffrey D. Burson - 2013 - Contributions to the History of Concepts 8 (2):1-24.
    This article considers the methodology of entangled history and its potential for nuancing or circumventing scholarly controversies over the nature and extent of the Enlightenment in eighteenth-century religious thought. After sketching the development of entangled history theory and its potential applicability to studying the Enlightenment, the rest of the article provides a case study of one way in which the insights discussed in the first parts of the article can be applied to current controversies about how historians construct the concept (...)

    Enlightenment and Catholicism in Europe: A Transnational History.Jeffrey D. Burson & Ulrich L. Lehner (eds.) - 2014 - University of Notre Dame Press.
    In recent years, historians have rediscovered the religious dimensions of the Enlightenment. This volume offers a thorough reappraisal of the so-called “Catholic Enlightenment” as a transnational Enlightenment movement. This Catholic Enlightenment was at once ultramontane and conciliarist, sometimes moderate but often surprisingly radical, with participants active throughout Europe in universities, seminaries, salons, and the periodical press._ In _Enlightenment and Catholicism in Europe: A Transnational History_, the contributors, primarily European scholars, provide intellectual biographies of twenty Catholic Enlightenment figures across eighteenth-century Europe, (...)

    The Jesuit Suppression in Global Context: Causes, Events, and Consequences.Jeffrey D. Burson & Jonathan Wright (eds.) - 2015 - Cambridge University Press.
    In 1773, Pope Clement XIV suppressed the Society of Jesus, a dramatic, puzzling act that had a profound impact. This volume traces the causes of the attack on the Jesuits, the national expulsions that preceded universal suppression, and the consequences of these extraordinary developments. The Suppression occurred at a unique historical juncture, at the high-water mark of the Enlightenment and on the cusp of global imperial crises and the Age of Revolution. After more than two centuries, answers to how and (...)

    The interweaving of sacred and secular: metaphysics, reform and enlightenment in the rivalry between Dom Deschamps and Claude Yvon, 1769–1774.Jeffrey D. Burson - 2019 - Intellectual History Review 29 (3):439-466.
    The Benedictine Dom Léger-Marie Deschamps and the philosophical Abbé Claude Yvon may indeed be minor eighteenth-century figures, and they both may be considered to have emerged from the Catholic side of something Helena Rosenblatt has dubbed the Christian Enlightenment, but neither of these figures is neatly “conservative” (as Mark Curran defines it), nor are they fully “radical” (in the sense of having contributed to the Radical Enlightenment). Rather, Deschamps and Yvon are among a number of eighteenth-century figures who do not (...)
