The Revolt of the Widows: A Feminist Guide to the Christian Apocrypha
January 15 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 7:00 pm on Tuesday, repeating until January 15, 2019
Presented by Dr. Al Setz
The Apocrypha is a class of books that existed alongside the books that later became the New Testament. They offer an unusual view of early Christianity.
In these lectures we will visit the world of the late second century apocryphal Acts. You will see rare beasts and have unique adventures. You will see flying magicians, dazzlingly beautiful maidens falling in love with itinerant apostles, and women attacked by carnivorous seals. Finally, you will meet the lion who speaks liturgically and declares his faith in the One True God by declining the amorous advances of a lady lion. What’s not to like?
For years Al Stetz taught a course in OSU’s Honors College about issues that relate religion and science, including the nature of human consciousness. His past teaching includes a course in religion and science called “Warthogs and Boa Constrictors,” and another course modestly titled, “Life, the Universe, and Everything.”
This seminar is open to the public. No admission will be charged.
