The Liberating Arts: Earmarks of a Liberal Education

Edmund A. Opitz lectures students attending a FEE Alderbrook seminar in 1988.

From Acton: The Rev. Edmund A. Opitz was a Congregationalist minister who for decades championed the cause of a free society and the need to anchor that society in a transcendent morality. A man of wide reading and high culture, Opitz was for many years on the staff of the Foundation for Economic Education in Irvington-on-Hudson, New York.

He was the founder and coordinator of the Remnant, a fellowship of conservative and libertarian ministers.
