In Defense of Penelope (Introduction)

To make a long story short, having encountered in some non-Christian educational circles I’ve traveled, much soul-rotting skepticism about the “supposed virtues” of Penelope, which skepticism does not scruple to simply and viciously attack her as a virtual non-entity in a world of oppressive toxic masculinity, I’ve decided to do a series of posts on Penelope that engage in detail with such skepticism.

My hope is that this series will serve to alert other classical Christian teachers to the horrific way Penelope tends to get treated in certain academic circles, and so enable such teachers (1) to better engage the classics for themselves and (2) better prepare their students for the “toxic feminism” that is presently and quite brutally victimizing our whole cultural heritage and indeed, our own souls.
