Eliot Fund brings Kenney back to campus

Former faculty member John Peter Kenney, dean of St. Michael’s College in Colchester, Vermont, returned to Reed in February to present the annual Eliot lecture on “Ancient Transcendentalism: Platonic and Christian.” Kenney, an authority on St. Augustine, Plotinus, and mysticism in late antiquity, is the author of Mystical Monotheism: A Study in Ancient Platonic Theology (Brown University Press, 1991, paperback edition 2002) and the forthcoming The Mysticism of Saint Augustine: Re-Reading the Confessions. The Thomas Lamb Eliot Memorial Fund for Religion was established in 1953 by Eliot’s son, William Greenleaf Eliot, Jr.; this year marks its 50th anniversary.
