For centuries Christian poets, preachers, and artists have made use of animal symbolism to communicate the mysteries of the faith. In this module we will study such topics as: animals in the Bible; monsters in the monasteries; peace and violence in the animal kingdom; animals at prayer; and the talking animals of

C.S. Lewis’ Narnia Chronicles.
