International Institute for Culture


November 30, 2017    7:00 PM       
The first presentation in an on-going monthly series on the Great Books and the Catholic Liberal Arts. 
"Love and War in the Iliad" looks at a key theme in Homer's timeless poem: the bitter truth of human mortality. 
A close reading of the description of the shield of Achilles demonstrates how this very human theme not only informs the understanding of the whole world of the ancient Greeks, but also touches us today. 
The speaker: Stephen Cordova is the Latin instructor at Martin Saints Classical High School. With over twenty years of teaching in the Liberal Arts, he brings a lively speaking style and passion for ancient texts. 
Light refreshments will be served after the talk.
Individual: $10/each
