This lecture by history professor George Yagi will seek to show you how a renowned academic turned his back on a life of fame and prestige to venture into the wilderness of the New World to serve as a humble missionary.

Famous for establishing the California Missions, Father Junípero Serra was a remarkable man whose achievements spanned across two worlds. Prior to his arrival in California, he was an established academic at Lullian University on the island of Mallorca in Spain. A brilliant scholar, he had secured a professorship at the age of 24.
