Liturgy & Personality
October 10, 17, 24
A three-week reading group through Liturgy & Personality just for clergy with Dr. Maria Wolter.
The group will meet over Zoom on Tuesday afternoons (October 10, 17, 24) from 2:00 PM – 3:00 PM ET.
About the Text
A precursor to the “Liturgical Movement” of the twentieth century, Dietrich von Hildebrand’s Liturgy and Personality is an awe-filled appreciation of Mass and its role in personal formation. Written by a philosopher who had recently converted to Catholicism, the book awakens us to see with fresh eyes the true beauty of the liturgy.
The meeting will be conducted live in Zoom. Links for the session will be sent out ahead of time.
To allow for rich discussion, the group is limited in size to a maximum of 20 participants. Once the group is full, additional registrations will be placed on a waitlist.
All participants are expected to have a copy of the text and to come prepared to each session having done the weekly reading (15-45 pages per week). The weekly reading schedule will be e-mailed to you.
Dr. Wolter graduated with a B.A. in Philosophy, Theology, and History from Franciscan University of Steubenville. She pursued her M.A. in Philosophy, as well as her STB, M.A., and STL in Theology at the Katholieke Universiteit in Leuven (KUL), Belgium, where she also received her Ph.D. in Philosophy. An Austrian-American national, she returned to Austria upon receiving her present appointment at Franciscan University of Steubenville at its Study Abroad Program in Gaming, Austria, in 2007.
Reading groups are free to attend.
If you are able, we invite you to make a donation to help defray the costs of organizing (reading groups cost the Hildebrand Project ~$900 for a four-week group). We are committed to making reading groups accessible to all; therefore, participation is not contingent on a donation.
Your gift support this reading group, our publications, web resources, and other events, all of which contribute to bringing the vital, life-giving witness of personalist philosophy into new and uncertain times.
Suitable for beginner to intermediate: primarily discussion.
