Magdalen College: From the Summit

“Benedict, Boethius, and Bosco” (Anthony Esolen Episode 6)

February 24, 2020

Anthony Esolen discusses his recent lecture "The Boethius Option" elaborating on Boethius as a model for cultural and political engagement as well as the examples of St. Benedict and St. John Bosco.  He also takes up the critical role that imagination, literature, and song play in the formation of our character and the character of our children.  Finally, he introduces and reads a new hymn-poem "I shall arise, and seek my Father's house" (to be sung to the tune "Old 124th") from his poem “The Hundredfold: Songs for the Lord.”
