Event Details

The Henry C. Potter Lectures will hold its inaugural lectures April 4-5, 2013 from 6:30pm-7:30pm. Rev. Dr. Patrick Madigan, SJ (editor of the Heythrop Journal of Philosophy and Religion, Heythrop College, University of London) will give two papers. The first one is 'Expressive Individualism, the Cult of the Artist as Genius, and Milton's Lucifer.' The second paper will be on Harold Bloom's view of the relationship between John Milton and the English Romantic poets in the period after the French Revolution - Byron, Wordsworth, Keats, Shelly, and Coleridge - whom Bloom sees carrying on the revolution 'by other means.'


Purpose
The world today often disassociates the sacred from the secular. This breakdown is a tragic one because Christianity has been such a robust influence on Western culture for the past two millenia. The Henry Codman Potter Lecture Series seeks to engage faith and culture in a rich way that leads to the building up of society in all of its facets. 

Mission & Vision
To assist the Parish of St. Mary and Martha of Bethany in Buford Georgia in her Faith Formation ministry and to create greater opportunities for dialog between the church and the greater Atlanta community.

Background
Henry Codman Potter is the namesake for the lecture series. He was the seventh bishop of New York City and greatly influenced the Christian Social Gospel movement and worked tirelessly to influence politics with Christian truth.
