This is the second part of the Wilton Reads Interfaith Clergy program. Following the earlier program presented by Dr. Fariborz Mokhtari, a panel of Wilton clergy will discuss such related topics as mutual respect and tolerance among religious groups.

To supplement the discussion, Father Reggie will be bringing a 9/11 Bible, Reverend Coffman will be bringing a communion chalice that was smuggled out of Czechoslovakia during WWII, and Rabbi Bearman will be bringing the temple’s Holocaust Scroll: a historic Torah that survived the Nazi occupation of Czechoslovakia.

Dr. Gerald Weiss leads this 4-part series on the poetic masterpiece of the Roman poet Catullus. Poem 64 is an epyllion or 'mini-epic' that uses an epic narrative style but which is considerably shorter at only about 400 lines. The poem brings alive a marriage 'Bedspread' and reformulates myth and the nature of heroism. Dr. Gerald Weiss earned both a B.A and an M.A. in Classical Languages from St. Louis University. He pursued graduate studies in Philosophy and Theology at Innsbruck University (Austria) and later at the Gregorian University (Rome, Italy) where he received his Ph.D. See the library's registration link for more details.
