In his lecture, entitled Art and the Glorious Liberty of the Children of God, Professor Esolen clearly articulates and answers essential questions about the nature and purpose of art and the work of the artist, as well as art’s relation to the human soul and to civilization itself. Professor Esolen refers to Dante, Shakespeare and to two extraordinary works of art found in New Bedford, MA.
Special thanks to Father Austin Litke, OP and the CAS members and volunteers who helped organize the evening!
