Gothic Horror originated in the eighteenth century in English literature. Gothic Horror, with its inclusion of the “dark” supernatural, actually has a lot to say about theology, religion, and psychology. In this series of online lectures, I explore and explain the philosophy, theology, and religious ideas utilized in Gothic Horror which culminates in an examination of guilt, history, and theology in Horace Walpole’s great novel, The Castle of Otranto.
LECTURE ONE: THE THEOLOGY OF GOTHIC HORROR
LECTURE TWO: SEX, VIOLENCE, AND THE SACRED IN GOTHIC HORROR
LECTURE THREE: THE PHILOSOPHY OF THE SUBLIME IN GOTHIC HORROR
LECTURE FOUR: HORACE WALPOLE’S CASTLE OF OTRANTO
