Review: Memorize The Faith! (And Most Anything Else): Using The Methods Of The Great Catholic Medieval Memory Masters
Memorize The Faith! (And Most Anything Else): Using The Methods Of The Great Catholic Medieval Memory Masters by Kevin Vost
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Nice, very specific book on mnemotechnics and Catholic religious education. Kevin Vost presents the art of memory in a catechetical context. The art of memory consists not of "drill-and-kill" rote repetition, but rather, of techniques of lively creativity and vivid imagination. For anyone interested in opening his mind and allowing it to reflect on the ideas, beliefs, experiences, and reflections of those who came before us, as well as those who are with us, holding the world and making it vivid in our mind's eye, this is book is a good resource.
