HDR Seminar: Remembering the Egyptians

Tuesday, 7 May 2019, 1:30 pm2:30 pm AEST

Policy, politics and personalities in the memory of persecution

1:30pm (Adelaide local time), 7 May 2019

Why are some martyrs remembered? Why are others forgotten? Why are some remembered but not cherished?

Join Kathie Papadopoulos (PhD candidate, Australian Lutheran College) for a short journey through selected works of Eusebius of Caesarea, John Chrysostom and Severus of Antioch as she examines the impact of policy, politics and personalities on the memory of Egyptians martyred during the Diocletian persecution and argues for the need to develop a more dynamic cross-cultural-linguistic model to better explain the history of traditions.

And when the Lamb opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of those who had been slain for the word of God and for the testimony they had upheld. – Revelation 6:9

Everyone is very welcome.
