Start Date

Location

virtual event

Description

The Department will host a colloquium to discuss this recent publication by St. Thomas theologian Dr. John Martens, with co-editor Kristine Henriksen Garroway and guest reviewer Christian Laes.

In Children and Methods: Listening To and Learning From Children in the Biblical World (2020), Kristine Henriksen Garroway and John W. Martens bring together an interdisciplinary collection of essays addressing children in the Hebrew Bible, New Testament, and broader ancient world. While the study of children has been on the rise in a number of fields, the methodologies by which we listen to and learn from children in ancient Judaism and Christianity have not been critically examined.

This collection of essays proposes that while the various lenses of established methods of higher criticism offer insight into the lives of children, by filtering these methods through the new field of Childist Criticism, children can be heard and seen in a new light.

While a free department event, members of the public may register for consideration to attend. This event is virtual.
