Time and Chronology in Creation Narratives - 07-08-09/06/2018, Lampeter (Wales)




The stories told about the beginnings of the universe, of places, or of peoples explore how the unfamiliar space and time before us came to be the word in which we live now. Most give a clear explanation of how the space of our world came to be, but fewer of them give a clear explanation of how the chronological framework in which we live came into existence.


FECHA/DATE/DATA: 07-08-09/06/2018
