Ascetic and Monastic Developments of the Near East in Late Antiquity and Their Influences Today

March 13, 2016 @ 10:00 am - 10:45 am EDT

Seminarian Virginia Goss discusses Ascetic and Monastic Developments of the Near East in Late Antiquity and Their Influences Today. The decline of martyrdom brought about a growing need for other ways to demonstrate devotion and commitment to faith. Drawing from scholars such as Peter Brown and others, she will examine the function of Christian ascetic and monastic practices within the Near Eastern context and how they can influence our own understanding of ministry and communities of faith.
