Reading the Catholic Cosmos:
Catholic Studies and the Catholic Literary Tradition

Building on last year’s colloquium this year we will focus on the particular contribution of the field of Catholic Studies in creating the cultural and academic milieu that will contribute to the Catholic literary tradition as well as the birth of a new body of literature. To this end this Colloquium will explore the role of Greek and Roman classics in establishing natural law, the presence of metanoia in the canon of great books, the persistence of Catholic themes in purportedly modern, postmodern or humanistic texts, and the role of Catholic literature in theology, economics, politics and philosophy.

Featuring a special presentation from Dana Gioia, acclaimed poet & author

Origins – Tracing the Ancient Liturgical Rite

Solis Camerata (Choir of the Sun)

Dr. Kira Zeeman Rugen, Artistic Director

Presented by Catholic Phoenix

Catholic Phoenix is proud to present its fourth annual Sacred Music Concert, Origins—Tracing the Ancient Liturgical Rite, featuring Solis Camerata. Repertoire for this concert exhibits the oldest forms of liturgical chant from the early Church and its continued development over the centuries.


Christian liturgy has its roots in ancient cultures, customs, and worship dating back to the first centuries after Christ, but evidence of ancient music is obscure. Although historians uncovered manuscript fragments believed to represent early musical notation, scholars debate possible transcriptions and authenticity.


The regular use of liturgical chant in Christian worship, however, preserved it as a unique oral tradition. As Christianity spread, each liturgical tradition incorporated aspects of the local culture and diverse language of worshipers, creating an enduring multi-cultural liturgical treasure.


For Origins, Solis Camerata will perform polyphonic and melodic developments as imagined by composers from antiquity to the twenty-first century, including commissioned works by local composer, Tom Peterson, and Solis Camerata’s artistic director, Dr. Kira Zeeman Rugen. Repertoire presented at Origins reflects the diversity of the early church as well as common threads across religious cultures throughout history. Examples come from the Byzantine rite, Chaldean rite, Russian Orthodox tradition, Georgian liturgy, ancient Greek extant, the Hebrew heritage, and the Western tradition in the Roman Catholic Church.

A student of both University of Toronto’s Marshall McLuhan and W. Edwards Deming, the 20th-century initiator of the Total Quality Management (TQM) movement in business, Rev.
