    Q: How did Memoria Press get its name?

    Can someone share the story of how, among so many possible choices, the name Memoria was chosen for the title of the Press?

    I have some ideas, but I would love to hear it if someone can tell it.

    This question may have to wait until Tanya returns from vacation, unless I see Brian around today.

      Hopping over to interject this from Mrs. Lowe. I had asked Mrs. Lowe the same question, Jessica P., and I'm so thankful I did.


      I came up with the name memoria (memoria -ae) because memory is so foundational to a classical education and as you know is completely countercultural to progressive education. Training the memory is the first practical task of the teacher. Training teachers to focus on memorization in the classroom is really the first practical step in turning that teacher away from modern education to traditional classical education. -- Cheryl Lowe

        Thank you so much for sharing that from Mrs. Lowe, cherylswope. As if we needed any more reasons to love Mrs. Lowe, we have another.
