CHANGING HEARTS AND MINDS: RELIGIOUS CONVERSIONS FROM ANTIQUITY TO THE REFORMATION

Wednesday 16 October: 7:30pm - 9:00pm

Faculty of Divinity, Sidgwick Site, West Road, CB3 9BS

What does it mean to turn oneself - or be turned to - God? How, historically, have individuals imagined, experienced and narrated their own conversion and that of others? Do they conceive of religious conversion as a single moment or a lengthy – even lifelong – process? How have religious communities ratified or sealed conversions? These questions will form the focus for discussion between Sophie Lunn-Rockliffe, Giles Waller and Daniel Weiss from the Divinity Faculty’s Cambridge Inter-Faith Programme, considering the range of ways in which conversion has been narrated in early Christianity, rabbinic Judaism, and the Protestant Reformation.
