The Biblical Roots of Western Liberal Education

The Pearl of Great Wisdom: The Deep & Abiding Biblical Roots of Western Liberal Education — The rich tradition of liberal learning in the West has in fact remained at the most fundamental levels more biblical than classical. From the fountain of biblical study flowed not only a high order of widely applicable interpretative skills ( techné), but, more fundamentally, confidence in the crowning of knowledge with wisdom (its logos) continuously to correct and regenerate intellectual culture. The classical goals of education, eloquentia et sapientia (eloquence and wisdom) cannot be successfully realized without a persevering reference to the higher and integrative wisdom of Sacred Scripture.
