Address: "The Crucified Beauty That Will Save the World"
Recording Date: Oct 20, 2011, 7:00 PM
This lecture was focused on the Christian idea of beauty in all of its arresting strangeness—especially its insistence that an instrument of suffering and shame has become the Tree of Life, transforming human ugliness into divine loveliness. Specific attention was given to the fiction of Flannery O’Connor, the poetry of G. K. Chesterton, and the hymnody of Isaac Watts. PowerPoint from Lecture (.pdf)
