Inaugurační přednáška v sérii „Přednášky Františka Palackého“ - přednáška prof. Christopha Markschiese

Učená společnost Vás srdečně zve na inaugurační přednášku „Vstup křesťanství do velkého světa. Judaism, Christianity, Gnosticism in Antiquity or describing a landscape without traditional maps“ v sérii přednášek Františka Palackého, která proběhne 28. 11. 2017 od 16:00 hod. v místnostech 205, 206 budovy Akademie věd ČR, Národní 3, Praha 1. Přednášku pronese prof. Christoph Markschies (Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin). Prof. Markchies bude hovořit o křesťanství od konce 1. do 3. století, kdy ještě nebylo jasné, zda se stane rozhodujícím duchovním proudem tehdy (z našeho hlediska) známého světa. Taková analýza umožní najít ty skutečnosti a s nimi spojené tradice, které se v dějinách osvědčily a mohly by pomoci i nám. Přednáška bude pronesena v angličtině a tlumočena do češtiny.
