Beauty Attracts at 2017 Wojtyla Summer Institute
Beauty and Catholicism was the theme of the 7th annual Wojtyla Summer Institute. From August 10 to 13, 2017 more than 50 educators, the largest attendance to date, came from as far away as New Brunswick and Manitoba to hear lectures and presentations covering a range of topics relating to beauty in the Catholic Tradition. The talks focussed on diverse areas that included art and iconography, church architecture, poetry, the natural world, history, and liturgy.
Dr. Ky Heinze, Assistant Professor of Patristics at Seat of Wisdom College, opened that first day with a presentation entitled “Defining Beauty in the Early Church.”
