What could a fourteenth century Italian have to offer citizens of a twenty-first century world?
In a conversation at last weekend’s retreat I heard of John Kinder‘s recent lecture on Dante Aligheri’s Divine Comedy, given by John to the Dawson Society in Perth. While John’s academic career (most recently as Chair of the department of European Languages and Studies at the University of Western Australia) has been in Perth, he began his life in Invercargill New Zealand.
In a conversation with Tom Gourlay (president and co-founder of the Dawson Society for Philosophy and Culture), and John Kinder on Saturday afternoon, over a beer, we chatted about the lecture and this morning John sent me the link I had requested. I am happy to share the link here so that foodforfaith readers can also appreciate John’s inspiring presentation.
