Welcome to Wilton Library
Join Dr. Gerald Weiss as he takes a new look at the Biblical parables as poetic fiction and provocative metaphors. Participants will reread and listen to some of the most familiar parables from Scripture from a literary standpoint. Dr. Weiss will examine the nature of parable, allegory and metaphor and review different kinds of parables with one or more parables being the focus of each week. Dr. Gerald Weiss earned both a B.A and an M.A. in Classical Languages from St. Louis University, pursued graduate studies in Philosophy and Theology at Innsbruck University and received his Ph.D. from Gregorian University in Rome. Packets will be available at the Circulation Desk one week before the first session begins. Registration required. See registration link for more details.
