If you have a question about this talk, please contact Charity Green.

A talk about the range of ways in which conversion has been experienced & narrated in different religious cultures.

What does it mean to turn oneself – or be turned to – God?

How, historically, have individuals imagined, experienced and narrated their own conversion and that of others? Do they conceive of religious conversion as a single moment or a lengthy – even lifelong – process? How have religious communities ratified or sealed conversions?

These questions will form the focus for discussion between Sophie Lunn-Rockliffe, Giles Waller and Daniel Weiss from the Faculty of Divinity, considering the range of ways in which conversion has been narrated in early Christianity, rabbinic Judaism, and the Protestant Reformation.
