The Hero’s Quest – A Journey into Character and Christian Existentialism 15th November 2019 Resources

Dan Wright, Honorary Senior Research Fellow and Headmaster of the London Oratory School, has produced the Hero’s Quest - a character education course for 16-18 year olds in Catholic ethos schools. The Hero's Quest, a quest which is at the heart of all the world's Sacred Traditions is available as teaching resources for teachers teaching Key Stage 5 students. The course considers the heroic quest in Classical Antiquity, especially in the myths of Homer and tragedies of Sophocles, before moving on to the Middle Eastern deserts where early Christian heroes went to lose themselves in order to find themselves. These materials examine how these heroes overcame themselves in order to acquire the heroic qualities of virtuous leadership - qualities which laid the foundations of western civilisation - qualities which are still relevant in the twenty first century.To find out more click here
