Start time where you are: Your time zone couldn't be detected


This is the fourth salon in a six part series on Flannery O’Connor and American Catholic fiction, led by Dr. Jennifer Frey, associate professor of philosophy at the University of South Carolina and host of the philosophy, literature, and theology podcast, Sacred and Profane Love.

Flannery O’Connor once wrote that “evil is not a problem to be solved but a mystery to be endured.” In this salon, we will discuss the role of mystery in O’Connor’s fiction in relation the problem of evil and suffering, paying close attention to the question of how fiction can help us enter into this mystery more deeply.
