X443: The Catholic Worldview of JRR Tolkien in Splash 2019 (Apr. 06, 2019)
This course is a brief overview of J.R.R. Tolkien's great work of the Lord of the Rings. It will have fairly in-depth insight into how his work was influenced by his Roman Catholic faith. There will be a crash course on the plot, so no experience is required. After this crash course, major themes will be discussed in the context of specific events in the story. (The faith aspect will be entirely objective and looked at simply as a set of values just like any other. The focus will be on how Tolkien was inspired by his set of values, and how it bleeds through his work - it's important to know those values in order for someone to fully appreciate the Lord of the Rings.)
