I got this message from my friend Mike Wallacavage at the International Institute for Culture. I can't go, [grumble, grumble] but hopefully some of you can.

Study Faith and Culture in Europe!

“Communitas: The Restoration of Christian Community in an Age of Alienation”

Summer Seminar held June 14-July 5, 2003 in Bavaria!

Immerse yourself in the rich intellectual and cultural tradition of Catholicism with this three week seminar on faith and culture in Eichstätt, Germany. Seminar includes a three day excursion to the spired city of Prague.

Join approximately 45 participants from around the world to investigate the vital nature and history of community in the Catholic tradition. Lectures from a distinguished international faculty (offered in English) will span the theology of community, its historical reality, ideologies which have undermined it, and the role of Catholic social thought in the prospects of its renewal.

Speakers include Father Francis Canavan, S.J., Dr. Hanna-Barbara Gerl-Falkovitz, Dr. John M. Haas, Dr. Nikolaus Lobkowicz, Joseph Pearce, Dr. Josef Seifert, Dr. Evelyn Birge Vitz, Dr. Michael Waldstein, and Dr. Hans Bernhard Wuermeling.

Experience Catholic community amid the gothic and baroque splendors of Bavaria’s legendary landscape. Awake to a town lost in time, dominated by Churches, Monasteries, Castles, Cafes, and Town Squares with the chimes of bell towers lingering on quiet summer evenings.
