Study in London & Oxford

_________________________________________


This year Benedictus is collaborating with the Second Spring Summer School programme.

Tuesday 1st August - Tuesday 15th August 2017

_________________________________________

The course will begin in London working with the Benedictus formula of classroom seminars and lecture visits to galleries and museums with a focus on philosophy and material culture. Themes explored include the faith in transition from medieval to early modern culture and the Northern Renaissance.

The course will then transfer to Oxford for the Second Spring module of the two-week programme where classes and excursions
will concentrate on literature and history, tracing the cultural impact of the Reformation and the revival of faith and culture in the 19th and 20th centuries.

During this course you will explore the interconnecting themes of Art, Culture & Faith through study of philosophy, theology, history, literature and the arts.

You will study some of the milestones, both intellectual and cultural, that have marked the development of our culture; from the classical past to Catholic Europe; from Plato and More to Raphael and Tolkien, in each case highlighting the thematic connections between the disciplines.

Whether you have just left school, are studying at university, or are a 'student of life' who is keen to discover some of the riches of western Europe in its philosophy, literature, art and music, then this course is for you. While the course is aimed at those 18-26 years of age, other adults are welcome to apply for this year's programme.

The course comprises lectures, classroom-based reading seminars and visits to galleries and museums; this exciting combination of learning techniques is essential in order to emphasise the connections across the subjects and understand the context in which major cultural and intellectual developments took place.
