The Killeen Chair, Heidgen Chair and the Office of Mission and Heritage of St. Norbert College present Carol Neel and "Augustine, the Canonical Tradition and the Liberal Arts," a lecture that explores the indebtedness of the liberal arts tradition to Augustine of Hippo and to 12th century canons in his religious tradition-notably the Premonstratensians.

The lecture will be held on Tuesday, Oct. 10 at 7:30 p.m. in Old St. Joseph Church at St. Norbert College. This event is free and open to the public and will coincide with St. Norbert College Heritage Days.

Neel is a professor of history at Colorado College and is internationally recognized as one of the foremost scholars on the early Premonstratensians. Neel's work focuses on the early history and spirituality of the Norbertines and their place in the world during the 12th century. In addition to her extensive work on the Norbertines and other monastic movements, Neel has lectured and published widely on the condition of women during the medieval age.
