HUMANISM AS AN EDUCATIONAL IDEAL
February 6, 2021
The ideal of educating the total human person – the project that took on the name “humanism” - became a widespread norm for education in the Christian world of early modern Europe, whence it spread to North and South America. The distinguished historian Fr. John O’Malley examines the sources of the humanistic style of learning, the place of that style in Catholic culture, and, more broadly, in the world in which we live.
This event is co-presented with the Lumen Christi Institute, and co-sponsored by the Saint Benedict Institute, the Collegium Institute, the Nova Forum, the Institute for Faith and Culture, the St. Paul's Catholic University Center, and the Boston College School of Theology and Ministry.
