The
Philadelphia Society National Meeting

April 11-13, 2008

Sheraton National Hotel, Arlington, Virginia

Europe, the United States,
and the Future of Western Civilization

Christopher
Dawson in his book, appropriately titled, Understanding Europe, 1952,
provides reflections on the common problems of Europe, America, and Western
civilization.  It would be worthwhile to read his reflections before coming
to the meeting.

For reflections on the
origins and early development of Western Civilization, tying together Alfred the
Great, Gregory the Great, St. Benedict, and Charlemagne, click on Alfred
the Great.
  There is also a link in this document to an important
article by Walter McDougall relating Charlemagne to our present
situation.
