Road Trip to “Art and Soul” Conference
Baylor University, March 21-22!
The DBU Pew College Society will take an overnight road trip to
Baylor University for the “Art and Soul” Conference
on March 21-22, 2003. We will be staying in the Victorian Inn in
Waco. The PCS will pay the conference tuition; each student is responsible
for lodging and food at about $30.00-40.00 per person.
theme of the Art and Soul conference is “Mystery and Meaning
in the Arts. Mystery pervades good art - whether literary, musical,
theatrical, or visual. Indeed, the presence of mystery in the arts
helps express the subtleties of meaning and complexities of interpretation
that distinguish lasting works from the merely faddish.
the role of mystery - if not mysteries themselves - has constituted
a central preoccupation of many of the world's finest thinkers,
writers, and artists.
Art & Soul 2003 will include public lectures and readings, writing
workshops, lecture-recitals, visual art exhibits, film screenings,
and a scholarly symposium, and will feature invited guests such
as: Kathleen Norris (novelist, poet), Jeremy Begbie (University
of St. Andrews/Cambridge), Frederica Mathewes-Greene (author and
speaker), Ralph McInerny (University of Notre Dame and noted philosopher
and author of over fifty books), and Ralph Wood (Baylor University),
and many others.

4390 Pietas et Doctrina II: Studies in Christian Scholarship
Monday nights, 5: 15-7: 45 pm
In this class, Pew students will be reading classic and contemporary
books on the subject of Christian scholarship. Beginning with Plato,
we will examine the Greek concept of paideia (liberal arts education),
and then move on to see how this notion was developed by Christian
thinkers such as Augustine, Luther, the Puritans, Newman, Lewis
and others. We will learn how the concept of Christian paideia,
as well as Christian education and scholarship in general, have
been affected by modernity, and how a rebirth of interest in these
areas has been underway in the last several decades. This class
will prepare students for graduate school and for callings as Christian
