2012: J.R.R. Tolkien


The 2012 Catholic Literature Series revisited the works of J.R.R. Tolkien—an author who has already been featured in our Series, but whose incredible talent and influence merit a second look. While most undergraduates today are surely familiar with Tolkien’s work, relatively few may be aware of the deep influence his Catholic faith had in shaping that work. The release of the Hobbit movies proved the perfect opportunity to reexamine Tolkien’s work in light of his faith. Watch video recordings of the lectures at the links below.
