Oscar Wilde is represented in the popular imagination primarily as an irreverent wit and literary aesthete. Yet his works reveal a profound pre-occupation with questions of a spiritual nature, and are deeply imbued with images and concepts drawn from Christianity, especially Roman Catholicism. Amongst his lesser known writings is much religious poetry, and writings on the ethical and axiological problems facing modern humanity. This study weekend will offer fascinating and surprising insights into the work of this great writer.
