Posted: 10/24/14 3:10 PM
Come see the new exhibit “The Lord Gave and the Lord Took Away”: The Fire of 1882 located on the 3rd Floor of the McDonald Library! This exhibit is offered by Charles Rosebrough, a Senior HAB major, in conjunction with the Xavier University Archives. The exhibit stems from Charles' work transcribing and translating the Archives manuscript Historia Domus?, a collection of annual reports written by Jesuit house historians of the downtown St. Xavier Church. Historia Domus offers new insight into the enormous fire which occurred the night of April 6-7, 1882, a $100,000 fire that completely gutted St. Xavier Church. This event influenced the development of the Jesuits’ property downtown and St. Xavier’s relationship with the city at large. The exhibit includes photos, a fire artifact, the Historia Domus and more! The exhibit will continue until November 26th.
