Save $50 when you book by February 15!
What makes a piece of literature sacred?
How did some of the most revered religious texts come to be?
How have sacred texts changed over time?
This year’s Lyceum academic conference, “Sacred Texts: From the Bhagavad Gita to the Bible and Beyond,” seeks to inspire conversation around these questions and more. Add your voice to the discussion on campus at Unity Village this spring.
In addition to two days of thought-provoking presentations from scholars, teachers, and religious studies students on the topic of Sacred Texts, Lyceum 2013 will include two keynote presentations from acclaimed authors Dr. Bart Ehrman and Philip Goldberg.
Dr. Bart Ehrman, a professor at the University of North Carolina–Chapel Hill and author of four New York Times best-sellers, will kick off the conference with an opening keynote Thursday evening. Ehrman’s latest release, Forgery and Counterforgery: The Use of Literary Deceit in Early Christian Polemics, is the first comprehensive study of early Christian pseudepigrapha produced in English.
Philip Goldberg, an ordained Interfaith Minister, author, and spiritual counselor, will close the conference with his keynote presentation Saturday evening. Goldberg’s American Veda: From Emerson and the Beatles to Yoga and Meditation—How Indian Spirituality Changed the West chronicles the history and influence of India’s spiritual teachings in America. It was named to the Huffington Post’s list of Top 10 Religion Books of 2010.
Your Lyceum Weekend registration ($349) includes tickets to both keynote presentations, attendance at the scholar presentations, and meals (starting with dinner Thursday and ending with breakfast on Sunday).
