F601 Summer 2018 The Theology of Les Miserables
Tuesdays, 9:40–11:05, June 19–July 10
Four sessions
Instructor: Steve Goldman

Sacrifice, forgiveness, the refusal to accept forgiveness, repentance, redemption, law, justice, grace, mercy, pride, greed, humility, and perfected love are some of the grand themes affecting the human condition explored in Victor Hugo’s classic 19th century novel Les Miserables. We will examine how it presents a romantic, sublime theology that challenges us regarding our own ethical standards and interpersonal relationships.
Steven C. Goldman is the chair of OLLI’s Religious Studies Program Planning Group and has taught numerous courses on alternative understandings of Biblical doctrine.
