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.
