Ever since the rise of Christianity, there has been an uneasy tension between pagan literature and the Christian faith. Although it laid claim to the ultimate truth, early Christian authors struggled with the power and beauty of their Christian forebears. In this talk, Dr. Maiullo explore some of these tensions, as well as some possible solutions, as he shares his research on one possible answer provided in the correspondences of one 17th century woman, Anna Maria van Schurman.
This lecture is part of the Continuum Scholars Faculty Development Program: an inter-divisional cohort of pre-tenure faculty members who met last summer to discuss theological perspectives on the vocation of scholarship, the current state of theological reflection and engagement in their research fields and disciplines, and the ecumenical continuum of theological perspectives through which our colleagues both at Hope College and within higher education approach their own scholarship. Our goal through this program and these lectures is to build a community committed to an ongoing conversation about faith, vocation, and scholarship.
