Elaine Pagels May 6th at St James Madison Avenue on Revelation

Elaine Pagels, the Harrington Spear Paine Professor of Religion at Princeton University, will speak at St. James’ Church at 6:30pm on Monday, May 6. The church is located at the corner of Madison Ave. and 71st St., and the talk is FREE. Pagels, the recipient of a MacArthur Fellowship, is best known for her work on the Gnostic Gospels, and is most recently the author of Revelations: Visions, Prophecy, and Politics in the Book of Revelation (Viking, 2012), which was favorably reviewed in the New York Times Book Review and the New Yorker. She will offer Art, Music, and Politics in the Book of Revelation, a multimedia presentation on the use of language and imagery from the Book of Revelation in times of war and conflict.
