Pop-Up Lecture Monday, October 24 at 7pm
St. Nersess Armenian Seminary invites you to a pop-up lecture on Monday, October 24 at 7pm with Ani Shahinian, an Oxford PhD candidate and frequent visitor of the seminary where she receives guidance in completing her research.
Ani is one of the world’s rare specialists in Armenian martyr texts, using them as a lens to look at broader issues such as the phenomenon of choice and the Armenian understanding of virtue.
There has recently been renewed interested in Armenian martyrs within the wider church. In 2015-2016 Pope Francis spoke of “the eloquent and holy sign of martyrdom, which has constantly accompanied the history of your [Armenian] people.” A future course on the psychology, history, faith, and impact of Armenian Martyrdom is in the planning stages. We cordially invite our St. Nersess supporters and friends to take advantage of this opportunity to hear a sample lecture from this projected series on Monday, October 24 at 7pm.To register, click here. The lecture will be recorded.
