Ancient Revelation: Divination, Prophecy and Epiphany - 25-26-27/06/2019, Durham (England)
The objective of this conference is to explore the reasons for the paramount success that the concept of ‘revelation’ enjoys during the first Imperial era. Its chronological focus is placed on the I-IV centuries AD, an age in which the notion of ‘revealed truth’ is appropriated by different religious, ethnic, and cultural groups (such as Jews, Christians and pagans), who employ it to define their respective identities and traditions, to articulate their reciprocal (and not always peaceful) interactions, and more broadly to construct their own worldview — a far-reaching endeavour, whose effects are still visible today.
LUGAR/LOCATION/LUOGO: Birley Room, Hatfield College (Durham, England)
