In the process, the course engages many of the most perennial and far-reaching questions that we face in our daily lives. The lectures draw upon the resources of history, philosophy, literary study, art history, religious studies, political science, and the history of science and technology, in hopes of engaging the rich and profoundly interactive discussions that, over the course of forty centuries, have made Western culture what it is.

The idea for this series of courses is great. There's literature, history, philosophy. It's a veritable "great courses" series in 84 lectures. However, the individual lectures (and professors) are of mixed quality. Some are outstanding, interesting, well organized; others (e.g., Richeimer) are fairly painful to listen to.
I find MS easier to listen to than most, not all.
The connection of the doctrine of the Immaculate Conception, developed during the Patristic Period, with Paul's theology made me just a little skeptical of everything I was hearing.
"As excellent as the first..."
As the first one. Very good indeed. Highly recommended. Socratic links to gospel writers and ideas well explained, though I'd look at Augustine for some perspective!
