About this Item

CLEAN!! No marks. Might as well be new. Appears unread. . On September 15, 2007, the Catholic Church declared the Very Reverend Basile Antoine Marie Moreau, C.S.C. blessed. Fr. Moreau is the Founder of the Congregation of Holy Cross, the Marianites of Holy Cross, the Sisters of the Holy Cross, and the Sisters of Holy Cross â" religious orders of priests, brothers and sisters dedicated to the hearts of Jesus, Joseph, and Mary. The order was founded in Le Mans France in 1837 in the wake of the French revolution and the reign of terror. Holy Cross institutions and communities in the United Sates, and throughout the world, in recognition of the zeal and holiness of Fr. Moreau set aside a year of celebration â" a year of rejoicing and of spiritual renewal. The University of Portland, as appropriate to its mission as Catholic university in the Holy Cross tradition, fashioned its celebration under the title Sacred Imagination. Activities sponsored by the University and its Garaventa Center for Catholic Intellectual Life and American Culture included a pilgrimage to Le Mans, liturgical celebrations, musical performances, art exhibitions, lectures, books, and study of the spirituality of the institution and its members. This book, Sacred Imagination, represents part of that celebration. The book had its beginnings in the extended study by faculty members from different disciplines of the work Sacred and Secular Scriptures: A Catholic Approach to Literature by Cambridge professor Nicholas Boyle. Following the facultyâs reading and studying of the book, Boyle lectured at the University of Portland and engaged in extended discussion with these members of the faculty and with some of their classes. In response to that study some participants directed their attention directly to Boyleâs text while others took up the topic of sacred imagination more broadly. Accordingly, the book is divided into three parts: the first part directly engages Boyleâs work; the second part takes up sacred imagination more generally â" in art and in literature; and the third part deals with the results of the loss of sacred imagination. .215 pages : illustrations ; 26 cm Contents: Introduction -- Section 1: Engaging Boyle's Sacred and secular scriptures.
