about the teacher
Wes Callihan grew up on a farm in Idaho and earned a BA in history from the University of Idaho in 1983. He has been teaching for 40 years in various institutions and is the founder of Schola Classical Tutorials, where he taught online classes in the great books and other classical subjects for the past 26 years. He is the primary lecturer in the Old Western Culture video series published by Roman Roads Press, and he has produced new versions of the Iliad and Odyssey, also published by Roman Roads Press. Like the Venerable Bede, he enjoys reading, writing, and teaching.
Statement of Faith
I teach as a Christian and in the light of the historic Christian faith. I affirm the Nicene Creed as a faithful summary of the Christian faith. The only spiritual requirements of the students are a good attitude, a willingness to learn, and a commitment to kindness and graciousness toward others, but it should be expected that the teaching will clearly, explicitly, and regularly reflect a historical and classical Christian perspective.
