The Good Samaritan: Jesus’ teaching, “Good Samaritan” laws, and Dickens’s Mrs. JellybyAdd to My Calendar
Wednesday, March 2, 2016
6:30 pm – 7:30 pm
Andrew Hall, Parish House
Victor Austin and Jeremy Waldron will lead this three-week course. On the first Wednesday, February 17, Father Austin will introduce the famous parable and draw out its background, the significance of its context, and some alternative interpretations. In the second session, February 24, Professor Waldron will speak on so-called “Good Samaritan” laws. And in the third and final session, March 2, Professor Waldron will address the implicit cosmopolitanism of the parable, as he contrasts the Good Samaritan with Dickens’s character, Mrs. Jellyby.
