“Forgiveness and Solidarity in Dostoevsky’s ‘The Brother’s Karamazov’” a Lecture by Dr. Healy

September 19, 2018 (6:00pm - 8:00pm)

Dr. Nicholas Healy will present a lecture entitled "Forgiveness and Solidarity in Dostoevsky's The Brother's Karamazov" on Wednesday, September 19 at 6:00pm at the Catholic Information Center (CIC).

The CIC is located at 1501 K St NW in Washington, DC.

This event is free and open to the public. Reception to follow.

Description:

Fyodor Dostoevsky’s last and greatest novel, The Brothers Karamazov, explores the question of God’s existence against the backdrop of suffering and betrayal within a troubled family. The genius of Dostoevsky is to have grasped that there can be no love for human beings without a love for God — and conversely, there can be no belief in God without a deep and profound love for mankind. Prof. Healy will present a brief overview of the structure and characters of the novel, focusing on the themes of solidarity and forgiveness.

This lecture is part of a three-part series on original sin in literature, co-sponsored by the CIC and the Thomistic Institute.
