The Lindisfarne Option: How to Turn Back the Tide of Cultural Forgetfulness


Martin Cothran


Presented at the 2017 National Conference in Austin, TX.

Three recent books have discussed our cultural crisis: Rod Dreher’s The Benedict Option, Anthony Esolen’s Out of the Ashes, and Cardinal Chaput’s Strangers in a Strange Land. The crisis discussed in these books largely involves an intentional effort to make us forget who we are. How adequate are the solutions offered by these authors? What must we do to preserve our culture, and what role does education play in saving Western civilization?
