Beierwaltes Lecture - Prof. Anders Christian Jacobsen - The Image and Likeness of God: Human Dignity in Origen

last modified Mar 16, 2019 02:17 PM

The Cambridge Centre for the Study of Platonism proudly hosted Prof. Anders-Christian Jacobsen (Aarhus) for his Beierwaltes Lecture, 'The Image and Likeness of God: Human Dignity in Origen', Monday, 4 March 2019. The lecture moved from Origen's understanding of the creation of humanity, to the notion of the inner and outer human, and considered these questions in relation to Origen's understanding of the soul's descent. The 'Early Christian Origins of the Human Rights Tradition? Exploring Patristic Concepts of Individuality and Freedom' workshop reflected more on these questions the following day.
