Paula Fredriksen | Paul, Augustine, & Krister: On the Introspective Conscience of the West

March 11, 2019

This episode is one of four, re-podcasting of lectures from honorary doctors of the joint faculties of Humanities and Theology, Lund University. First out is Paula Fredriksen.

Paula Fredriksen is a Distinguished Visiting Professor at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem. She was made Honorary Doctor at the Faculty of Theology as recognition of the high international standard of her research in religious studies. Professor Fredriksen's research is characterised by an explicit inter- and multidisciplinary perspective. Her research is thus linked to several successful subjects at the Faculty of Theology in Lund - New Testament studies, patristics, Jewish studies and general history of religion just to name a few. Her interest in Paul the apostle and Augustine the Church Father is a common thread throughout her research, from her thesis "Augustine’s Early Interpretations of Paul" (1979) and onward. Fredriksen has also written about Jesus as an historical figure and the early Jesus movement as a branch of Judaism at the time and, furthermore, has sought to spread her research results to the general public.

Professor Fredriksen's lecture, entitled "Paul, Augustine, and Krister, on the Introspective Conscience of the West", was recorded at LUX on June 1st, 2017
