In this lecture by Dr. Vigen Guroian, Professor of Religious Studies in Orthodox Christianity at the University of Virginia, Guroian discusses his book, “Tending the Heart of Virtue.” Guroian argues that tales like "The Velveteen Rabbit," "The Wind in the Willows," and the "Chronicles of Narnia,"capture the meaning of morality through vivid depictions of the struggle between good and evil in which characters must make difficult choices between right and wrong, or heroes and villains contest the fate of imaginary worlds.  The lecture takes place in room 339 of Blanchard Hall, located in the center of campus.
