Lecture: ‘The Ethical Dilemmas of Apocalyptic Millenarianism’

John J. Collins, Holmes Professor of Old Testament Criticism and Interpretation at the Yale Divinity School, will give a public lecture entitled ‘The Ethical Dilemmas of Apocalyptic Millenarianism’

Subject of the lecture and volume to be launched: What awaits us beyond the grave is perhaps the fundamental human mystery. Visionary accounts of the afterlife are attested long before the Common Era, and loomed large in the imaginative universe of early Christianity. The medieval Irish inherited and further transformed this tradition, producing vivid eschatological narratives which had a profound impact throughout Europe as well as being texts of remarkable literary and spiritual power in their own right.
