7/11/18 – OLF Book Club
This month, the OLF Book Club will be discussing Violence and the Sacred by the late Stanford professor and devout Catholic, René Girard. Girard’s landmark analysis of sacrificial rituals from around the world will form the basis for our discussion of some of the distinctive features of the Byzantine Christian tradition, particularly the notion of sacrifice in the liturgy, the priesthood, and soteriology (theosis).
Attached is a pdf copy of the book. Please look over Chapter 1 titled “Sacrifice”. The meeting will be at 1pm on July 22nd in the upstairs library after the agape meal.
All are welcome!
