Christianity and Classical Culture, Episode 5: Sophocles Part II

In this episode of Christianity and Classical Culture, we continue a discussion of Sophocles that started with Oedipus Rex. We continue by discussing both Oedipus at Colonus and Antigone in depth. Dr. Fleming knows these plays very well and it is a real treat to listen to his discussion of the various threads within these plays and the interpretation of them both in their time and in ours.
