A day colloquium on canons, catalogues, and cranks addressing the question of who or what decides what we know.

This colloquium asks a simple question: who or what intervenes in that which we think we know? The question can be answered from the highest level (divine guidance) to the lowest (fraud). Across a range of cultural topics, the colloquium investigates a few answers. We move from the formation of the canon of the Christian scriptures in the 4th and 5th centuries; from the difference between a published novel and how it began; to the experience of music when we do not know its composer or have mistaken, or been misled about, its authorship; from the role of saints for whom there is no real evidence to the more general question of the place of others’ decisions about the forces that shape what is, or looks like, knowledge.

Today we have an opportunity to explore and experience stillness. Magdalen Houlihan retired from teaching and is engaged in promoting silent prayer and supporting those entering into the regular daily practice of this prayer of quiet. “Some of us seem to stumble upon Silent Prayer. We are not aware that we are looking for prayer. Perhaps we do not know what we are looking for; we only know that there is a yearning within that is not being satisfied. Having come upon the place in which the hidden treasure is, I am committed to guiding others to this place.”
