March 29 – Jaś Elsner

The Workshop on Late Antiquity and Byzantium is pleased to announce its next meeting.

Jaś Elsner will present “Vrt‘anēs K‘ert‘oł and the Dynamics of Iconoclasm in Seventh Century Armenia.”

This paper explores the seventh century response to iconoclasm made by the Armenian prelate Vrt‘anēs K‘ert‘oł — a text with interesting ramifications for the bigger history of the cult of images and the resistance to images in the early Christianities of the East.

Please join us on Tuesday, March 29th, at 4:30 pm in CWAC 152.
