Narrating the Law of Incest: Jewish, Christian, and Zoroastrian Perspectives in Late Antiquity

Wednesday, April 6, 2016 - 5:00pm - 6:15pm
421 Williams Hall, 255 S. 36th Street

Yishai Kiel will lecture on the dynamics of law, narrative, and myth, through the lens of incest. I will focus on rabbinic (Palestinian and Babylonian), Christian (Latin, Greek, and Syriac) and Zoroastrian (Pahlavi) traditions and highlight discursive and cultural distinctions (roughly between East and West).

Co-sponsored with NELC.
