Faculty Seminar Series

Presenter: Dr. Sandra Collins, Professor

Topic: The Pleasure of Sarah: Recovering Eden Again

Synopsis: In Genesis 18, we have Sarah’s laughter regarding the promise of a child despite her advanced age. Rabbinic as well as patristic commentary has much to say about this event. We too will look closely at this short but important exchange, where we will find clues to the anxieties of the later interpreters as well as a poignant moment where Sarah encourages us to consider Eden again.

Question and Answer session included.
Program concludes by 8:15 PM.

Location:    Byzantine Catholic Seminary, 3605 Perrysville Avenue, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania 15214
