Forthcoming event: Collaborators Conference

Fr James Alison will be leading a workshop for the Collaborators Conference. The Toward A Girardian Reading of Revelation workshop will address a sustained reading of the Book of Revelation which Girard himself never attempted. Nevertheless, Girard’s insights furnished with the ever-greater understanding we have of the “codes”, or “imaginary world” proper to those associated with the Jerusalem Temple in the years leading up to and surrounding its destruction in 70AD, do give us a sense of how misleading it has been to read our sense of what is “apocalyptic” into the world of the “Apocalypse of St John”. James plans to explore this, before turning to some considerations of how the vision shared with John can help us read the violence of our own times. Learn more and register
