An Advent Gift: A Course on the Metaphysical Poets

The Traherne Windows, Hereford Cathedral

As we make our way through Advent in anticipation of the Great Feast of Christmas, I am making available my Metaphysical Poets online course for free, though for a limited time. I will have it available until at least Twelfth Night, and I hope you enjoy it. The intended sequence of the course is "On Agapeic Criticism," "Metaphysical Poets: Introduction and Background," and then John Donne, George Herbert, Richard Crashaw, Henry Vaughan, and Thomas Traherne—but you certainly can pick and choose which lectures you want to see and in whatever order you like. It's all available on my YouTube page.

Wishing you a blessed Advent and a happy Christmas.

Henry Vaughan, Part 2

Michael’s latest books are an edition of The Chymical Wedding of Christian Rosenkreutz and Transfiguration: Notes toward a Radical Catholic Reimagination of Everything. He can be reached at See also The Center for Sophiological Studies' available courses.
