This lecture discusses key ideas from the medieval monk, theologian, philosopher, and educator Alcuin of York's work, On Virtues and Vices. Specifically it examines his discussion in chapters 1-5, beginning with wisdom, going through the theological virtues of faith, hope, and charity, and then finishing with "zeal of reading" (the scriptures).
