Mary as Evangelist: Engaging Culture Beyond the Church

Class Description
In an attempt to embrace the feminine, parts of our culture have romanticized goddesses, whether the Hindu Kali, the Greek Aphrodite, or the Buddhist Guanyin. In this two-lecture series we will address this challenge by returning to the Virgin Mary (covering material not explored in our previous series on the subject). The argument will be made that benign views of pagan goddesses are misguided. The Christian answer is not that Mary is a goddess, but that she is something far more salutary: Theotokos (Mother of God), but at the same time, she is our lowly sister in Christ as well. Registration link is below for this new class.

Class Leader
Matthew J. Milliner is Associate Professor of Art History at Wheaton College.
