David C. Albertson, professor of religion at USC, will speak next Sunday, May 15, in Hoffman Hall at both 10am and 12:30pm on the topic of “Nicholas of Cusa and the Via Negativa.” At his 10am presentation, “Two Ways to God in Medieval Mysticism,” Albertson will compare the usual sensory encounters with a shadow dimension of Christian mysticism, in which silence and darkness convey more about God than speech and light. At 12:30pm, he will speak specifically about Nicholas of Cusa and his relevance for modernity. Albertson will look at two of Nicholas’s most famous mystical writings and consider how they might point toward an experience of God within modern science and modern art.
We look forward to seeing you at both 10am and 12:30pm! Lunch will be provided at 12:30 for a $10 donation.
