New British Catholic College Announces First Summer Program

A new Catholic College in England inspired by the writings of Blessed John Henry Newman, as previously reported, is inviting students to take part in a two week program this summer.

From August 10-22, Benedictus College will have students “sample a traditional liberal arts education” as well as enjoy “daily visits to London’s cultural centres,” according to the program’s website.

The program is open to students between the ages of 18 and 25, with 15 slots available.  The College reports:

Each morning students will attend seminars in which the emphasis will be on reading and interpreting original texts such as the work of Plato, Aquinas, Dante and Shakespeare. Everyone will be encouraged to develop their skills of reasoning and debate whilst developing their understanding of how these works have shaped modern society.

Afternoons will be spent out of the classroom on a trip to one of London's most important cultural centres, such as the National Gallery or British Museum, where a member of our Academic Team will guide students in their discussion of great works of art.

 The course will suit young people keen to discover some of the riches of western European heritage in its thought, art, music and architecture as well as those who are preparing to study one of the related disciplines at university or even those already taking such a course.

In addition, Benedictus College is also hosting a two-day academic research forum in Florence in July, according to its website.  The keynote speaker is John Haldane, a professor of philosophy at the University of St. Andrew’s and the 2013-2014 Mary Ann Remick Senior Research Fellow at the Notre Dame Center for Ethics and Culture.
