Great Books Symposium
Beowulf: What does it mean to be a hero?

Loading Events

In Medieval Scandinavia, where monsters and dragons roamed the wilds, we find the great Beowulf. Through acts of cunning, bravery, and brute strength, Beowulf responds to many difficult circumstances. What is it that makes a hero? Is it what one accomplishes? What one becomes? What one intends? In this webinar, we will raise this and other pressing questions while practicing the art of discussion together.

A webinar for K-12 teachers in the private school, the public school, and the homeschool.

Maximum Attendees: 20, so be sure to reserve your spot early.
