  • From Dr. Turley’s lecture, we see how a medieval person might place themselves in relation to God, angels, stars and even planets (for example, Dionysius’ model). What is your understanding of yourself in relation to God, the cosmos, and the world we live in?
  • Can you think of an instance where you have employed “chronological snobbery” to discredit an idea or opinion?
  • Do any parallels come to mind between the world of That Hideous Strength and our own?
  • Consider the final outcome of That Hideous Strength, as well as the warnings Lewis made concerning chronological snobbery. What do you think Lewis would have to say about the scientific and technological claims we hold as truth today?
