Start packing your bags for our best conference ever! The 33rd Annual Chesterton Conference will be held at University of Saint Mary of the Lake (Mundelein Seminary) in Mundelein, Illinois, from July 31-August 2, 2014.

The theme of this conference is “The Democracy of the Dead.” As Chesterton writes in the fourth chapter of Orthodoxy, “Tradition is the democracy of the dead. It means giving a vote to the most obscure of all classes: our ancestors.”

We have an excellent roster this year including Dale Ahlquist, Joseph Pearce, David Deavel, Scott Richert, Fr. Robert Wild, David Fagerberg, Sean P. Dailey, Nancy Carpentier Brown, Tom Martin, Art Livingston, Julian Ahlquist, Fr. Ian Boyd, editor of The Chesterton Review, and Fr. John Udris, the English priest assigned to the investigation into G.K. Chesterton’s Cause for Canonization.

The Most Rev. Thomas J. Paprocki, Bishop of the Diocese of Springfield in Illinois, will deliver this year’s keynote address.
