Joseph Pearce to present ‘Unlocking The Lord of the Rings’ this evening

Joseph Pearce, author of “Tolkien: Man and Myth and Frodo’s Journey: Discovering the Hidden Meaning of The Lord of the Rings,” will give a talk on “Unlocking the Lord of the Rings” at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 4, in Canyon Commons 101-103. 

Tolkien described “The Lord of the Rings” as “a fundamentally religious work.” Pearce unlocks the symbolism that allows Tolkien’s epic to be read and understood at the deepest level of religious significance and Christian meaning.

Pearce is a Catholic author and biographer who has written about subjects as varied as GK Chesterton, economics and Shakespeare. He is senior editor at the Augustine Institute. His latest book, “Race with the Devil,” chronicles his conversion from racial hatred to Catholicism. He is also director of the Center for Faith & Culture and writer-in-residence at Aquinas College in Nashville, Tennessee, as well as the editor of St. Austin Review.
