HUMA111-1 History of Culture Through the Arts I

Monday 3:30–4:55 PM Betty Ann Hoehn & Matt Peterson Ph.D. 155 M
Required Textbooks:
  1. Fleming, William, Mary Warner Marien. Fleming’s Arts and Ideas. Volume I. Buy now, Alternate link978-053461382210th edition with CD-ROM/audio is greatly preferred. Used copies are cheaply available.
  2. Homer. The Odyssey. Students must choose one of the following three editions of The Odyssey:
    • Translation by Stanley Lombardo, published by Hackett Classics. Buy now This translation is not the most true to the original text, but it tries to keep its spirit while putting the poem into everyday, modern English and is probably the easiest and most readable version. Good choice if reading serious literature is often difficult or boring for you.
    • Translation by Albert Cook, Norton Critical Edition. Buy now This translation is the most true to the words of the poem - maybe the most accurate and literal translation from the original Greek you could find with helpful notes. Good choice if you really want to know what Homer was trying to say.
    • Translation by Richmond Lattimore, published by HarperPerennial. Buy now This is the most popular translation for good reason. Lattimore is true to the poem and poetic, but not as precise as Cook or as edgy and informal as Lombardo. Good choice if the two categories above do not sound attractive or if you fall somewhere in between them.
  3. Vergil. The Aeneid. Students must choose one of the following two editions of The Aeneid:
    • Translation by Sarah Ruden, Yale University Press. Buy now This is not only one of the most accurate translations from the Latin, but it is also the most compelling translation that will make the poem come alive for most readers.
    • Translation by Frederick Ahl, Oxford University Press. Buy now This is the first translation in English that keeps the same rhythmic structure as Virgil’s. Great for reading aloud, Ahl also keeps all of the poem’s original wordplay, puns, and anagrams. Good choice if any of that sounds interesting to you.

This class meets twice a week. To find the other meeting time, look for the listing with the same section number, i.e. the "-1" or "-2" after the course ID.

Message From Dr. Barber:

Congratulations on enrolling in Catechism I. This is an especially exciting course and I look forward to having you in class next quarter. In this course we talk about everything from the Church's teaching on the existence of God and the theology of the Trinity to creation and evolution and the nature of angels and demons (plus a lot more!).

There is a reading assignment which I expect you to finish for the first day of class. Please see this PDF containing the assignment and study questions. Most of the reading for the first session is found in the Catechism of the Catholic Church. You should already have a copy from previous courses. If not, you can find it on-line on many websites (e.g., here).

In addition, the part of the reading assignment that is not found in the Catechism (the article by John Cavadini) can be found here.

There will be an exam on the first session, so be sure to complete the assignment.

I look forward to having you in class next quarter. Studying the Catholic faith is a rich and rewarding experience. I hope that this course will leave a lasting impression on you and become one of the most memorable and enjoyable you take at JP Catholic. I will be working overtime with our team here to make the course as enjoyable and accessible as possible. Have a great, relaxing break!
