Professor Miroslav Volf of Yale Divinity School will deliver a lecture on "Memory, Salvation and Perdition: The Importance and Ambiguity of Memory" at 4:30 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 9, in McCosh 10.
The lecture is the third event in a three-year series offered by the Center for the Study of Religion , featuring speakers who combine strong interests in public affairs with rich understanding of theology, theological ethics, philosophy of religion and religious history. The series is sponsored by the Reynolds Trust.
Volf is the Henry B. Wright Professor of Theology at Yale Divinity School and Director of the Yale Center for Faith and Culture. He has published and edited nine books and over 60 scholarly articles. Most of his work addresses the intersection between faith and aspects of contemporary life, such as economics, politics, and interfaith relations. His book "Exclusion and Embrace," in which he reflects on conflicts raging around the question of identity, won the 2002 Grawemeyer Award in Religion.
