11:00 am Feb 22ndHAIG Lecture: David Weddle - "A Critique of Religious Sacrifice" Thomas Commons
Former Cornell professor and now Colorado College Professor Emeritus of Religion David Weddle will speak on "Christianity Without The Cross: A Critique of Religious Sacrifice." ​​What would religion be without sacrifice? Religions that honor Abraham still regard offering his son to God with deep ambivalence and interpret his act in ways that soften its moral offense. But Christianity understands Abraham’s near sacrifice as foreshadowing the crucifixion of Christ and Christian tradition early settled on sacrifice as the meaning of the cross. Was that decision necessary and could Christianity give up its theology of redemptive violence? We will consider alternative readings of the cross, from Peter Abelard to Martin Luther King Jr. Signed books will be available at the Cornell Bookstore. Weddle is the author of three books, most recently “Sacrifice in Judaism, Christianity, and Islam” (NYU Press, 2017). Co-sponsored by HAIG and Spiritual Life Office.

Join Colleges Against Cancer on the OC over lunch to fold paper cranes! Our goal honors the story of a young girl with cancer who tried to fold 1,000 paper cranes while she was in the hospital.
