Writer Rod Dreher will present a talk titled “How Dante Can Save Our Lives” on Thursday, April 16 at 8 p.m. in the Warner Memorial Library at Eastern University, Radnor. It explains the wisdom of Dante Alighieri, the Medieval poet and author of “The Divine Comedy,” which many consider history’s greatest poem.
The talk is the final in the Agora Institute Lecture Series for the year. It examined how artists in various forms can enlarge the public’s perception of the common good and expand one’s imagination.
It is a project of Eastern University’s Agora Institute for Civic Virtue and the Common Good. See agorainstitute.org for more information.
Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
