During the Italian Renaissance, the study of literature was designed to offer the reader moral instruction as well as delight and diversion. History—in particular exemplary, ancient history—was a repository of philosophical guidance and subjects worthy of emulation. History, biography, and epic offered the reader lessons on how to live a worthy life.
Sitting under the Chautauqua tent in the summer is an experience many Ohioans look forward to every year. Some travel 50 or more miles to attend the performances. But there is a growing group of Ohio Chautauqua enthusiasts whose passion for the program doesn’t stop at attending. These dedicated people invest in the summer series financially because their passion for sharing Ohio’s stories demands it.
Step out of the present and into the past. Join Ohio Humanities for the 17th annual tour of OHIO CHAUTAUQUA!
Perhaps you flipped through a few pages of the Companion Reader while waiting for a performance to begin. But did you have the opportunity to read the thought-provoking essays about the featured characters?
