This class is led by Deacon Rebecca Weiner Tompkins.
Perhaps Milton got it right when he wrote, "There are no songs comparable to the songs of Zion;/no orations comparable to those of the prophets;/and no politics like those which Scriptures teach"; and Ezra Pound certainly had a point when he said that T.S. Eliot preferred "Moses to Muses." In these three sessions we will make our way from the sixteenth to the twenty-first century, through and into some prime examples of poems that are clearly in relationship with passages from Scripture, the latter always being our starting point.
