Arete Classical Study Group Update

I have updated my Arete Classical Study group for our Fall 2007 reading series. You can see our new look here: http://www.areteclassical.com (we've moved from website to blog!)

Fall Schedule

We will begin reading through Josephus' Antiquities of the Jews in October. Proposed reading schedule is about 4 chapters per week for 5 weeks (no more than 15 pages per week). Then November, we will tackle some Plutarch and will read through a selection of the Parallel Lives. I need to remember to ask my friend Anne W. if we can use her excellent study notes (posted on Ambleside Online) for our class.

Lastly, we will take a long slow look at Tertullian's writings through the month of December (possibly on into January). Tertullian is considered the "Father of the Latin Church". His writings were influential in the later works of St. Anselm, St. Aquinas and St. Augustine.

If you are interested in reading some early church history, consider joining our group for the next couple months. It should be an excellent study on these important church writings.
