Dante and Liturgical Time: The Eternal in the Passing Hour

Wednesday, November 15, 2017 -
7:00pm to 9:30pm

Professor Tony Esolen will discuss the differences between how we experience time and how Dante, steeped as he was in both Scripture and in a way of life that measured time sub specie aeternitatis, experienced such. Time will be explored not only for the hours of the day, but for the years of a man’s life, and the entire history of mankind from the Fall to the Second Coming.

The tradition of liberal education recognizes and respects us as persons, but this kind of education is increasingly threatened today.  Our situation within the academy exhibits significant parallels with the status of human beings caught in the grip of ideology in totalitarian regimes.
