Catholic Literature Series

Every fall since 2002, the Notre Dame Center for Ethics & Culture has sponsored the Catholic Literature Series, a series of lectures focused on prominent figures in the Catholic literary tradition. The series sprang from the Center's desire to expose Notre Dame undergraduate students - and the entire Notre Dame community - to the richness of the Catholic literary heritage. In an age when names such as Chesterton, Waugh, and O'Connor have little or no meaning to many undergraduate students, even Catholic ones, we at the Center for Ethics and Culture hope to promote such writers both for the quality of their works and the uniquely Catholic dimension of their literary perspectives.
