Conversation with great friends and colleagues, discussing the things that are most worthwhile, often (but not always) having to do with the renewal of classical education.

Food and Drink

We don’t think we are gluttons, but we do believe in the church calendar with its feasts and celebrations.  Good talk often comes with great food and drink.


The Fellowship is committed to the study of classical curricula and philosophy, seeking to learn how it was understood and configured in past eras.


In addition to renewing the classical curriculum, we are committed to the studying the principles and practices of pedagogy–the best means of teaching.
