Macricostas Lecture 2010

Acclaimed author, essayist and cultural commentator Eric Metaxas shared lessons and insights drawn from his new biography of the 20th century German theologian and martyr Dietrich Bonhoeffer when he delivered the annual Macricostas Lecture on Friday, April 16, 2010, at Western Connecticut State University. Metaxas, author of the newly published work “Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy,” discussed the life of the Christian theologian whose active participation in the anti-Nazi “Confessing Church” movement and the anti-Hitler German Resistance before and during World War II ultimately led to his arrest and execution in April 1945. His lecture was presented by the WCSU School of Arts and Sciences as part of the Macricostas Lecture Series, funded by a grant from the foundation of Brookfield industrialist and philanthropist Constantine “Deno” Macricostas and his wife Marie.
