The Torrey Honors Institute is a Great Books honors program at Biola University, emphasizing dialogue with primary texts and community discussion. The seminar-style program is supplemented by a series of context lectures to help students understand the ways in which those Great Books exerted influence on their surrounding culture as well as the way the authors were influenced by the context in which they wrote. The context lectures presented here focus broadly on literature, from Spenser to Shakespeare to C.S. Lewis, and a lot in between.
