Each year, Loyola’s Committee on Catholic Social Thought hosts a lecture on morals and art and does so under the inspiration of Andy Warhol. Warhol was a daily communicant and was raised in the Byzantine Catholic rite. This year Loyola University Maryland hosts Michael Krom, himself of the Byzantine rite. Professor Krom is a member of the philosophy department at St. Vincent’s College. St. Vincent’s has a lovely setting and is built around a Benedictine monastery not far from Warhol’s Pittsburgh.
The lecture is at 5 pm in Knott Hall B01 on Loyola’s main Evergreen campus this Thursday, April 27th. The lecture is free and open to the public so if any reader should be around and wish to attend, please do! The theme of the lecture is contemporary music and what Socrates would have to say about how it contributes to moral formation.
There is paid parking in the Jenkin’s Lot off Coldspring Lane and anyone with disabilities should call the college and the college will gladly give assistance.
