Join the faculty of the Alcuin Institute as we read, ponder, and discuss the great works of the Catholic literary tradition! From St. Benedict to Dante, immerse yourself in the transfixing and transforming prose of the greatest writers of the Middle Ages. These texts shaped Christendom—now you can allow them to shape you! Through an accelerated/intensive two (2) week course, students will read, study, and discuss the primary literary texts that shaped much of the Western thought and practice. Taught by expert tutors of the Alcuin Institute and accredited through Newman University, students can earn university credit hours while encountering the beauty and transformative power of the Catholic literary tradition. This course will cover such texts as:
  • The Rule of St. Benedict
  • Dante's Inferno
  • Sir Gawain & the Green Knight
  • The Pearl
  • Joseph Pieper's Leisure: The Basis of Culture
Classes will meet 9am to noon, M-F at the Chancery Offices in Broken Arrow. Tuition rates are TBD. To receive updates about the courses, fill out the form below or reach out to Mr. Eli Stone at eli.stone@dioceseoftulsa.org!
