Book discussion series continues with “Interior Castle”
The “Reading Christian Classics” book discussion series will continue Thursday, Nov. 20 with Teresa of Avila’s “Interior Castle.” All members of the Salve Regina community, along with friends of the University, are invited to participate.
Sixteenth-century Carmelite nun and Christian mystic Teresa of Avila wrote “Interior Castle” as a spiritual guide to union with God. Inspired by a vision she received from God, the book also provides encouragements and advice for spiritual development.
The series will continue throughout the 2014-2015 academic year, and participants are welcome to attend as many sessions as they wish. The remaining schedule is as follows:
- Thursday, Feb. 26: “The Power and the Glory” by Graham Greene
- Thursday, March 26: “Death Comes for the Archbishop” by Willa Cather (available online)
- Thursday, April 30: “No Man is an Island” by Thomas Merton
Discussions will be held in the McKillop Library’s special collections room beginning at 6:30 p.m. and will last about one hour. Each participant should furnish his or her copy of the book, read it prior to the session and come willing to share interpretations or comments.
“Reading Christian Classics” is co-sponsored by the Department of Philosophy, the Pell Honors Program and the McKillop Library. For more information, contact Dr. Lois Eveleth, professor of philosophy, at (401) 341-3170.
