Denis McNamara at Loyola University


Loyola University with Mundelein College, The Sullivan Center, and Madonna de La Strada is a great setting for Dr. Denis McNamara to speak about "Faithful Architecture: Catholic Thought, Catholic Buildings". The Chapel at Loyola University has enough mixed up architecture to both love and question parts of the building, yet admire the energy and imagination that went into making this modern marvel.

Come on over to the (Soviet Looking) Sullivan Center tonight at 7PM tonight to hear Denis illuminate the Built Liturgy via his enlightened lecture.

Here is a shot of the great Art-Deco Mundelein College next door to the Sullivan Center.

Does any member of the Society know where one can obtain a copy of the Panegyric to St. Barbara which was long believed written by John Damascene?

I have not been able to get a full copy, but think it may have influenced the imagery of Barbara in the western Gothic traditions.

I would be very grateful for assistance on this.

Not sure where there is a translation, but here is a place that might know:
