Medieval Studies to Host "Interpretative Ideals and Polemical Purposes"

Kicking off its spring lecture series, Fordham's Center for Medieval Studies will host a discussion on the competitions and controversies surrounding early biblical interpretation, and what Byzantine exegetes had to say on the matter.

"All things are clear and open that are in the divine scriptures": Interpretative Ideals and Polemical Purposes in Byzantine Exegesis
Monday, Feb. 4
5:15 p.m.
Faculty Lounge, McGinley Center | Rose Hill Campus

This latest installment of the lecture series will feature Tia Kolbaba, Ph.D., associate professor of Byzantine studies at Rutgers University. Kolbaba is the author of The Byzantine Lists: Errors of the Latins (University of Illinois Press, 2000) and Inventing Latin Heretics: The Byzantines and the Filioque in the Ninth Century (Western Michigan University Medieval, 2008).

The event is co-sponsored by the Orthodox Christian Studies Center.
