Reading and the Virtue of Memory

I have an essay over at the Christian Scholars Review blog, called "Reading and the Virtue of Memory." An excerpt:


"Whatever our degree of understanding or loving the objects held in memory, we have not understood everything there to be understood, or loved everything there to be loved. This fact implies that we have not just ample but inexhaustible subject matter for memory to work on: always more to learn, always more to love."
