November 18th 2017 St. Martin’s Academy hosted the first of its quarterly public faculty lectures. Dr. Kenneth Klassen delivered a talk entitled “Removing the Veil: Gymnastic Experience, Wonder, and Reflections of Jean-Henri Fabre”. The public faculty lectures are part of our effort to create an intellectual community around the Academy that shares in the edification and pleasure of a virtuous life of the mind. Whether you were able to attend or not, Dr. Klassen’s talk bears sustained reflection and illuminates essential aspects of the St. Martin’s educational method.
