This volume is a literary and cultural investigation of the discord and resonance between classical ideals of heroic action and the imperatives of the Christian life, from the Homeric epic to the present day. Its central theme is the difficulty of recognizing, imitating, and participating in heroic excellence--a difficulty that has been a concern for classical, Renaissance, and modern writers alike.

Brian S. Hook is Associate Professor of the Department of Classics at the University of North Carolina in Asheville, North Carolina.


R. R. Reno is Professor of Theological Ethics at Creighton University in Omaha, Nebraska.
