Medieval Wisdom for Modern Christians
October 11, 2016, 2 p.m. - 4.p.m
Wade Center, Bakke Auditorium
Dr. Chris Armstrong will present a lecture titled "The Intuitive Medievalism of C.S. Lewis."
C. S. Lewis, like many in his close circle (e.g., Charles Williams, J. R. R. Tolkien, Dorothy L. Sayers), was a medievalist - not just professionally, but intuitively. We may love Lewis’s Narnian Chronicles and Ransom Trilogy with their medieval cosmology and morality. But do we understand the degree to which Lewis actually believed the world of the Christian Middle Ages holds the keys to a saner, more faithful life today?
In Medieval Wisdom for Modern Christians, Dr. Armstrong argues that Lewis's affection for the medieval era can help us to understand key aspects of medieval faith. This talk is free and open to the public. For more information, contact the Wade Center at 630.752.5908 or email@example.com
