We are delighted that VTS’s Reinicker Lecture takes place during the doctoral residency next week, on Tuesday June 26 at 7pm in Addison 101. Our guest lecturer is Keith Egan from Notre Dame, a renowned scholar in Christian Spirituality. Join us for what promises to be an uplifting evening!
His lecture is entitled "The Erotic Poetry of Saint John of the Cross." As Dr. Egan describes it, the poetry of the Spanish mystic John of the Cross takes readers on a journey through dark nights into a new reality where one hears "silent music" and "sounding solitude," and where one partakes of a "supper that refreshes and deepens love." There éros and agápe are partners in the transformation of differing melodies into a "Symphony of Love."
Dr. Egan will be with us for some days to follow as well, teaching in our Christian Spirituality track. His presence is a gift to us.
The Rev. Ross Kane, Ph.D. Director of Doctoral Programs Assistant Professor of Theology, Ethics, and Culture
