Noted author and Princeton scholar Elaine Pagels, Ph.D. gives the Inaugural Compagna-Sennett Religious Studies Lecture September 14th at 7pm in Ostrove Auditorium, Diamond Building.
In her talk "Vision, Prophecy and Politics in the Book of Revelation," she looks at the Bible a from a historical perspective, exploring who wrote the Book of Revelation and why it was written in the way it was. She compares it to other, similar Books of Revelation written at that time and how they differ. She also discusses her ideas about why we still read the Book of Revelation today.
This is a sneak preview of her book Revelations, which will come out in March 2012.
