A Tolkienesque retreat to contemplate things nobler: things true, honest, just, pure, lovely, good, virtuous and praise-worthy.

About this event

Across most of the modern world the Beautiful, True, and Good stand slighted and neglected. While some summon demons more dread than balrogs in league with Mephistopholes to invert reality, for most it is largely a benign neglect, a product of a world filled with distraction. How can Tolkien help us in the virtue of removing the "film of familiarity" (as Shelley put it) that keeps us from seeing the Glory of God in all things?

Join us for the Third Annual Doxamoot this October as we delve into the deepest depths of Moria to vanquish the monsters of banality and ennui as we together address these questions in lectures, Q&A, conversations, and even trivia and conviviality.

Speakers: Fr. Andrew Stephen Damick, Dr. Cyril Gary Jenkins, and some TBA
