TACOMA, Wash., Oct. 8, 2012 /Christian Newswire/ -- Angelico Press is proud to announce the publication of 'Beauty in the Word, Rethinking the Foundations of Education,' a remarkable new work by Stratford Caldecott.
Leo Clarke, Director of Media Relations, says: "When we published Stratford's 'All Things Made New' last fall, we were excited to learn that he was already at work on a book that would consider 'What is a good education, and what is it for?'. Now, in 'Beauty in the Word,' Stratford answers those questions by shining a fresh light on the three arts of language in a marvelous recasting of the Trivium whereby Grammar, Dialectic, and Rhetoric are explored as Remembering, Thinking, and Communicating. These are the foundational steps every student must take towards conversion of heart and mind. If your concern is for the true meaning of education for your children, here is the place to begin."
Stratford Caldecott is an editor of the English edition of 'Magnificat' and editor of both 'Second Spring' and 'Humanum.' In addition to 'Beauty in the Word' and 'All Things Made New: The Mysteries of the World in Christ,' his books include 'The Seven Sacraments: Entering the Mysteries of God' (Crossroad, 2006), and 'Beauty for Truth's Sake: On the Re-enchantment of Education' (Brazos, 2009). He lives in Oxford.
Anthony Esolen, Professor of English at Providence College and prolific author on Western culture, wrote the Foreword to 'Beauty.' He notes that the Trivium, as portrayed by Caldecott, "is an education that penetrates the heart and mind with light" and that, in 'Beauty,' Caldecott beckons us 'to ascend with him at last and see, once more, the stars."
Early reviews of 'Beauty in the Word' are uniformly excellent. For example, Aidan Nichols, O.P., author of 'Redeeming Beauty,' says, "'Beauty in the Word' is the fruit of a lifetime's thinking about the relation between faith and life. Those responsible for new initiatives in Catholic schooling have a chance to recreate the inner spirit of education and not just its outer frame. They will not easily find a program more inspirational than the one presented here." And Catherine Pickstock, University of Cambridge, adds, "Stratford Caldecott's words about beauty are themselves beautiful, and also wise; learned and also arresting. He offers a rare combination of intelligence and profound vision, yet combines this with accessibility and luminous transparency."
Stratford Caldecott's 'Beauty in the Word' (ISBN 978-1-62138-004-7, $14.95/£9.95) is now available at www.amazon.com or through www.angelicopress.com.
