- Brideshead Revisited Viewing Group: 6-8 PM (Peace & Justice Classroom, Corr Hall) The wait is over! Join us for the first installment of the exquisite British television adaptation of Evelyn Waugh’s masterpiece about the operation of grace in 1920s-40s England. Both novel and TV serial are deeply concerned with the theology and phenomenology of Roman Catholicism, particularly such themes as aesthetics, vocation, apostasy, conversion, sexuality, class structure, and education. Waugh wrote: “the whole thing is steeped in theology, but. . . the theologians won’t recognise it.” Perhaps we can prove him wrong. This week, we will watch and discuss the first episode, “Et in arcadia ego” (100 mins.): “In the spring of 1944, disillusioned Army captain Charles Ryder is moving his company to a new Brigade Headquarters at a secret location he discovers is Brideshead, once home to the Marchmain family and the scene of both pleasant and anguished visits for the younger Charles. Seeing the house for the first time in many years prompts a recollection of Charles’ first meeting with Lord Sebastian Flyte, the Marchmains’ younger son, at Oxford University in 1922, and the rest of the narrative flashes back to that time forward. At Oxford, two young men quickly bond and, although his cousin warns him to avoid Sebastian and his inner circle of friends, Charles is fascinated by them, particularly flamboyantly foppish Anthony Blanche. Short on funds, Charles finds himself fitfully spending the summer holidays in London with his indifferent and rigid father Edward until an urgent message from Sebastian sends him to Brideshead, where Charles is introduced to a world of wealth and privilege dominated by a powerful devotion to Catholicism.” (Wikipedia) Read about the 11-part serial here.
