This sixteen-volume reader set covers a selection of the great books of western culture – “Old Western Culture” as C. S. Lewis called it.
From Homer to 19th century authors this reader set contains the high-water marks of literature as well as a few relevant lesser-known works. Each reader in this set matches nicely with a unit in the Old Western Culture video course or they can be used on their own.
Two of the books are still in production. A common question is “why is unit one, The Epics, missing?” The reason is that we are working with Wes Callihan on a new edition of Homer’s Iliad! It will be worth the wait! Slated for a late 2020 release.
The Greeks (Year 1)
The Romans (Year 2)
Christendom (Year 3)
Early Moderns (Year 4)
End note: we also hope to create a cloth-bound hardback version of each reader. We’re excited about this long-term project and we’ll be excited to let you know when it’s finished (or nearly so). Make sure you’re on our email list to keep up to date or shoot us an email (firstname.lastname@example.org). We’d love to hear from you.
