"The Preachers chiefly shall take heed that they teach nothing in their preaching, which they would have the people religiously to observe and believe, but that which is agreeable to the Doctrine of the Old Testament and the New, and that which the Catholick Fathers and Ancient Bishops have gathered out of that Doctrine." A proposed canon of Elizabeth I, 1571

New Thursday Night Class at St. Vincent's

I will soon resume teaching my Thursday night "adult Christian education" class at St. Vincent's. This autumn we will focus on St. Bernard of Clairvaux (1090-1153). Bernard was one of the most influential theologians of the Middle Ages. He was also a highly regarded preacher. Few Christian thinkers have presented a more compelling vision of God's love than did Bernard. He was also a central figure in monastic reform and the preaching of the second Crusade. We will take a look at some of his most important theological writings and read a few of his best sermons. The course will begin on Thursday, August 25th, and last approximately six weeks. We will meet in the library at 7:30 PM, immediately following Mass in St. Mary's Chapel. No previous knowledge of Medieval thought is required, so if you are in the area please come!
