Medieval Armenians Consider the Image of God

Fall lecture in partnership with St. Nersess Armenian Seminary Monday, December 2, 2013 at 7:00pm, Close/21st St Rooms

Wine and cheese reception to follow

If human beings are made in the image of God, what does that imply for our self-understanding? And how does it expand our human understanding of God? The evenings presentation looks at these questions through the eyes of 13th century theological students in an Armenian monastery, as they dialogue with their teacher on the meaning of Genesis 1:26-27.

In addition to the presentation by Roberta Ervine, Professor of Armenian Studies, there will be a panel discussion with GTS faculty, Dr. Andrew Irving, Assistant Professor of Church History and Dr. Robert Owens, Professor of Old Testament.
