Conversations About Our Scholarly Lives

12:00 PM  - 1:00 PM
Monday Apr 29, 2013
Jan Serie Center for Scholarship and Teaching (Room 338), DeWitt Wallace Library

Susanna Drake, Religious Studies, will present “The Gospel of Jesus' Wife (and what it has to teach us about Christian debates about marriage)."  The announcement of the discovery of "The Gospel of Jesus' Wife" was met with protest, disbelief, and anger from many Christian leaders and scholars.  We will discuss how this tiny gospel fragment--and the controversy that ensued--have something to teach us about the diversity (and instability) of Christian attitudes toward marriage and women.  All faculty are welcome.  Lunch will be provided.
