CHANGING HEARTS & MINDS - 16 OCTOBER 2019, 7.30-9PM

A talk about the range of ways in which conversion has been experienced & narrated in different religious cultures. 

What does it mean to turn oneself - or be turned to - God? How, historically, have individuals imagined, experienced and narrated their own conversion and that of others? Do they conceive of religious conversion as a single moment or a lengthy – even lifelong – process? How have religious communities ratified or sealed conversions? 

These questions will form the focus for discussion between Sophie Lunn-RockliffeGiles Waller and Daniel Weiss from the Faculty of Divinity, considering the range of ways in which conversion has been narrated in early Christianity, rabbinic Judaism, and the Protestant Reformation.

THE END OF THE WORLD AS WE KNOW IT? - 22 OCTOBER 2019, 7.30-9PM 
A talk about how thinkers from antiquity to today have examined the notion of 'the end of the world'.

 

From the flood in the Hebrew Bible to our current climate crisis, the end of the world has repeatedly been nigh.

Hjördis Becker-Lindenthal, Simone Kotva and Sophie Lunn-Rockliffe from the Faculty of Divinity will discuss how different thinkers from antiquity to today have conceptualised the notion of 'the end of the world' in theological terms - from the idea that planetary death is a punishment sent from God for human sins or a self-wrought disaster brought on by heedless consumption. Is the way the current climate debate is being framed anything new? How do we know that the order of change in the natural world is now critical?
