Eve and Adam in the Gardens

April 18, 2018
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM
Off-campus
For millennia, readers have interpreted the story of “Adam and Eve” by pandering to him and blaming her for their expulsion from the Garden of Eden (Genesis 2-3). But there are more excellent ways. This talk will undercut the traditional reading by exploring anew the story of Eve and Adam as they enter the Gardens of Morningside. Speaker: Phyllis Trible, Baldwin Professor Emerita of Sacred Literature, Union Theological Seminary. This talk is one in the EPIC/Morningside Gardens Speaker Series, a collaboration among Emeritus Professors in Columbia (EPIC); Morningside Retirement and Health Services (MRHS); and Columbia University School of Professional Studies. Talks take place at 100 LaSalle Street, Room #MC. Enter the building (southeast side of LaSalle and Broadway) through the door under the small green awning marked MRHS and follow signs with arrows to the rooms for community gatherings.
