Dr. Matthew Tsakanikas, chairman of Christendom’s theology department, will deliver a new series of lectures on the Gospel of St. John for the Institute of Catholic Culture (ICC), titled “The Divine Eagle.” The series, which will be offered on Tuesdays beginning February 23 and ending on March 23, will be available virtually.
The lectures mark the latest collaboration between Tsakanikas and the ICC, after he delivered a series of lectures on the Exodus narrative as “Icon of Restoration” last fall.
Tsakanikas, who received his doctorate in sacred theology from the Pontifical University of the Lateran’s John Paul II Institute for Marriage and the Family in Rome, is the Chair of the Department of Theology at Christendom. He was the Director of the Institute for Religious Studies at Benedictine College and has taught at Saint Meinrad Seminary’s Permanent Diaconate Program and Saint Paul Seminary School of Divinity, and currently lives with his family in Front Royal, Virginia.
Tsakanikas’ series comes in addition to other ongoing offerings from Christendom faculty for the ICC, including philosophy professor Dr. John Cuddeback’s Philosophy 101 course: The Pursuit of Wisdom. In the course, which began on January 21 and will end on June 24, Cuddeback is providing students with an introduction to philosophy, emphasizing first principles of reasoning, foundational concepts, docility to reality and to the wise, and a philosophical habit of mind.
Past lectures from Christendom faculty, including College President Dr. Timothy O’Donnell, are also available on the ICC website, giving people a taste of the Christendom classroom experience.
