About This Workshop

One of the Latin words for education was simply humanitas. To be educated is to grow as a human being created in the image and likeness of God, growing in all our God-given capacities to use language and number, to name and quantify all we find in creation, and to grow in wisdom, virtue, and holiness. In this seminar, we will explore the ways that a Christian education is deeply human education, recalling what it used to mean to study the “humanities.” We will trace the history of a Christian “human” education that was anything but “humanist”--and consider the practical ways that we can recover education as soul formation and humanitas.
