Huber to present on Revelation and violence and on recent book

This weekend, Lynn R. Huber, assistant professor of religious studies, will be presenting a paper on Revelation and violence for a panel she co-organized for the Society of Biblical Literature’s annual meeting, which is being held in San Diego, Calif. 

Huber’s paper examines how medieval visionaries read Revelation’s violent imagery as a way of exploring strategies for contemporary interpretations of biblical violence. 

In addition, Huber will be presenting as part of a panel dedicated to reviewing her recent book, “Like a Bride Adorned:  Reading Metaphor in John’s Apocalypse,” and to employing the interpretive method it outlines.  Participants on the panel include commentators on Revelation and scholars of rhetorical biblical criticism and cognitive linguistics.
