by Angelo M. Codevilla
This concise “Best of the Bookman” essay from 1997 honors the late Notre Dame professor Gerhart Niemeyer, student of Voegelin and authority on ideologies, and suggests some of his enduring legacies—including a very Platonic lesson—were those taught by example.

book cover ‘Love Divine’: Remembering Gerhart Niemeyer
by Robert Francis Smith
