Jarinú, São Paulo, Brazil -- Cultural Roots of the West

Prometheus, Sysiphus, Agamemnon, Antigone… A serious study of classical culture reveals the eternal yearnings of mankind: the soul’s desire for God, the search for true love, the virtues of nobility, fidelity, and so many other human virtues. Many of these values were assimilated by Christianity but now find themselves obscured in today’s culture.

University and high school students in Brazil gathered during the month of January to go deeply into this topic, in the framework of a study session entitled “The Cultural Roots of Western Civilization,” which took place at the Montes Claros Conference Center.
