The Feminine and the Religious Imagination

In her lecture series, Rubin will explores the presence, meanings and effects of the feminine in religious cultures. She introduces texts, images and music associated with feminine figures and concepts in Christianity, while also casting a comparative gaze on other religions. The series included four lectures, a concert in King’s College Chapel and an event at the Aberdeen Art Gallery, all in pursuit of a rich and illuminating consideration of the feminine.
