Dante and Liturgical Time: The Eternal in the Passing Hour

Wednesday, November 15, 2017 -

Professor Tony Esolen will discuss the differences between how we experience time and how Dante, steeped as he was in both Scripture and in a way of life that measured time sub specie aeternitatis, experienced such. Time will be explored not only for the hours of the day, but for the years of a man’s life, and the entire history of mankind from the Fall to the Second Coming.
