Stephen Shoemaker, professor of religious studies at the University of Oregon, presents “Mary in Early Christian Faith and Devotion” at 7:15pm on Tuesday, January 31 in Franz Hall room 120. The event is free and open to all.
In his talk, Shoemaker will delve into ancient images and texts to provide evidence that devotion to the Virgin Mary began much earlier than previously thought. Shoemaker specializes in early Marian literature and devotion, early Christian apocryphal literature, and the emergence of Islam in relation to the religious cultures of Mediterranean late antiquity.
