CHRTC 342 Tolkien: The Theology of Middle Earth

The enigmatic and obscure Oxford philologist, J.R.R. Tolkien, produced a corpus of writings on the world of Middle Earth that has captivated countless readers. The cinematic renderings of the Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit have further popularized his works, yet readers and viewers alike are often surprised at the profound impression Tolkien's Catholic faith has made upon his writings. This course seeks to critically appreciate the artistic vocation and theological vision of J.R.R. Tolkien while exploring a major work of 20th century literature.
