The community the Jesuits formed among the settlers and Indians is an interesting and significant component of the religious history of the United States.

Lunchtime Discussions of Evelyn Waugh's Brideshead Revisited

This semester’s topic for our lunch discussions is the much loved novel by Waugh, Brideshead Revisited. Many are likely familiar with the British television series from the `80’s which lovingly recreated the book for screen.

The novel is most basically about the fate of Catholicism in the modern era but is also a heady mix of class, family, love, decay and betrayal. Amidst the drama of the book, Waugh mediates on social and political ideas connected to property, place, individualism, sexuality, art, capital, land, community, and opportunity.

We shall have three meetings this spring.

  • March 1: Brian Murray, Writing Department, on the Catholic literature of Waugh’s period. He’ll set up the context of the book. College Center 107
  • March 20: John Peck, Philosophy Department, on the Catholic ideas present in the novel. College Center 105
  • April 24: Graham McAleer, Philosophy Department, on the relationship of the book to Catholic social thought. College Center 105

Email Graham McAleer with your interest (gmcaleer@loyola.edu) so he can buy the books and send a copy to you in advance. As in previous years, discussion leaders introduce basic themes/background but then invite open discussion.

All sessions start at noon and conclude round 1:15. Lunch is served.

Hope you can make it! If you have questions, please email Graham McAleer (gmcaleer@loyola.edu)
