Virgil Father of the West by Theodor Haecker

Theodor Haecker.

A number of friends have asked for a copy of Haecker’s 1934 book, Virgil Father of the West.  Here it is in all of its PDF glory.  Enjoy.

Originally commissioned and edited by Christopher Dawson for his 16-volume series, ESSAYS IN ORDER.

As an additional tidbit, this book profoundly shaped T.S. Eliot and Russell Kirk.

A final tidbit–Haecker was one of the great anti-Nazis of Germany.  He died in the spring of 1945.
