Eleonora Rai Aracne editrice

Eleonora Rai is a postdoctoral fellow at KU Leuven, within the Research Unit of History of Church and Theology. Before joining KU Leuven, she worked as a postdoc at the University of Turin, within J. Ponzo’s research team, where she explored early modern canonization procedures and normative texts. Previously, she held postdoctoral positions and grants in Australia, within the ARC Centre of Excellence for the History of Emotions (Europe 1100–1800) at the University of Western Australia, and later Deakin University, and in Italy at Fondazione Fratelli Confalonieri. Since she obtained her double PhD from the University of Milan and the École pratique des hautes études (joint program, 2014), with a thesis on Jesuit theologian and candidate to sainthood Leonard Lessius (1554–1623), she has explored various topics in the area of History of Church, such as sainthood and simulation of sanctity, theology of salvation, Jesuit missions, and Suppression of the Society of Jesus. She is currently working on intra–Jesuit theological and moral disputes, combining approaches from the areas of History of Ideas and History of Emotions. Among her major contributions to the field of History of Church: La Santa Parola. Le veggenti di Pusiano e i loro seguaci (Edizioni Biblioteca Francescana, Milano, 2013); “Il santo e l’eretico: attribuzione di santità e controversie teologiche nei documenti di Sant’Ufficio e Indice.
