Jane and Jesus

Hosted by Karen Swallow Prior

What is the life worth living? What are our obligations to ourselves and to others? What does love mean, and how might we embody virtue?. These questions are as ancient as humanity’s primordial pursuit for self-understanding, and our podcast will examine them and others by looking at the surprising intersections of two figures: Jesus Christ and Jane Austen.

By closely reading a different one of Austen’s novels each season, and by examining her characters in light of Christ’s teachings, we hope to shed light on both, presenting a take on literature and popular culture that is as edifying as it is entertaining.
