John Senior’s The Restoration of Innocence
An Evening Speaker Event with Mr. Michael Verlander
John Senior (1923-1999) – Far too few people know the mind of Dr. John Senior, a
Catholic convert, author, and most importantly one of the most vibrant minds of the 20th
century advocating for an authentic classical education. He was one of the founders of the
Integrated Humanities Program at the University of Kansas, which produced the fruit of
more than 200 conversions to the Catholic faith and the founding of devout institutions
such as Clear Creek Abbey in Oklahoma. Dr. Senior’s ideas pinpoint the problems of
Modernism and propose a restoration of Christian culture within our homes and schools.
Michael Verlander is Headmaster of Mater Christi Classical
Academy in Newnan, GA. He has over fifteen years of experience
teaching at various educational institutions and has spoken on an
array of theological and philosophical topics. He has published work
by Sophia Press, has extensive experience homeschooling, and has a
particular interest in classical education in the poetic mode.
Mater Christi Classical Academy invites families, friends, and those who believe in the
efficacy of learning for a lifetime to please mark your calendar and plan to attend this sureto-
be stimulating talk, the first of many in a series on various topics.
