A Tale of Two Houses with Cn. Ted Copland, September 18-29 Priest-in-Residence, Only a few blocks from the House of The Redeemer is 180 East 101st Street. Still a home for immigrants to America, it was the first stop for Elizabeth MacKillop, a child from Edinburgh, during those early years of the 20th century when Edith Shepard Fabbri was about to build the house we enjoy today. We will reflect on how these two homes, and the lives of Edith and Elizabeth, provide snapshots of American life then and now. Free of charge. Thursday, September 28, 6:30 pm.
From Urbino to Manhattan: The Della Rovere Library, In 1607 the last duke of Urbino, Francesco Maria II Della Rovere, built a great library in the ducal summer palace in Urbania to celebrate the birth of a long-awaited heir. The boy grew up to be a monster and died young of debauchery. The duchy passed to the pope after the duke's death in 1631 and the books were swallowed up by Rome as well. Two and half centuries later the magnificent shelving was shipped across the Atlantic by an aesthete-architect, Egisto Fabbri, one of the early collectors of Cézanne, as the jewel decorating one of the loveliest houses of the Upper East Side. Not far away other fragments from the break-up of Urbino - the Studiolo of Gubbio and the Barberini Panels - found a worthy home in the Metropolitan Museum. This is the story of how Manhattan became a safe haven for the wreckage of a splendid Renaissance duchy. Tickets $25. Thursday, October 12, 6:30 pm.
The “Fourth Industrial Revolution” vs. Religion, Those of us 65 years of age and younger find ourselves on the brink of a world vastly – possibly irrevocably – altered from the one we know. Technology, such as IBM’s “Watson,” is increasingly displacing its more error-prone human counterparts. Manufacturing uses 3D printing to create substances ranging from human tissue (Organovo) to architectural elements in Beijing’s high-rises. Conversely, Christian churches in more developed, first world nations are in critical decline; growing numbers of millennials choose “None” to indicate their religious preference. What’s really happening here – and whence cometh our salvation? We invite you to join us in confronting this question. We’ll share our concerns and hopes for a tomorrow that includes a God of unchanging love and compassion for all. Free of Charge. Tuesday, October 17, 6:30 pm.
Finding the Words with Suzanne Martinucci November 2, 6:30 pm.
