The Modern Scholar: Odyssey of the West III: A Classic Education through the Great Books: The Medieval World | [Timothy Shutt, Thomas F. Madden, Monica Brzezinski Potkay]

The Modern Scholar: Odyssey of the West III: A Classic Education through the Great Books: The Medieval World

Odyssey of the West I and II explored timeless works from the ancient world that shaped, and continue to shape, the culture and philosophies of life today. Part three is a richly detailed look at St. Augustine, Beowulf, St. Thomas Aquinas, Authurian legends, Dante, Gothic art, and other highlights of the period. Through the course of these lectures, it becomes apparent that the "dark" ages were in fact a time of immense achievement, and a time that richly rewards those who study its art and philosophies.

    "Brilliant. Again."

    I knew nothing about medieval writing beyond the obvious. Really enjoyed Monica Brzezinski Potkay's lectures on Marie de France and Chretien de Troyes - I'd didn't even know they existed!
