Fall 2023 Honors Symposium: “Virgil’s Messy & Messianic Eclogue in the Great Conversation”
October 20, 2023, 12:00 pm-1:30 pmFree
TU students join the Honors College for our Fall 2023 Symposium! These gatherings provide a unique opportunity for honors students and faculty to enjoy good food, friendship, and informal conversation centered on classic texts, and exploring their importance in history and our modern world.
Join us for a special conversation with Julia Hejduk, Ph.D., of the Baylor Honors College! Hejduk will lead us through some short readings from the Roman poet Virgil’s Eclogues (and the later Italian Dante’s Purgatorio) to look at (potentially) prophetic pagan precursors to Christian Messianism, later Christian interpretations of these ideas, and their significance on the “Great Conversation” that has spanned the millennia.
Priority seating is given to Honors students and faculty. Location information and a free lunch will be provided for all registrants.
