2018. február 7-én (szerda) 17.30-tól Andrea Vanina Neyra (National University of Buenos Aires, Multidisciplinary Institute of History and Human Sciences of the National Scientific and Technical Research Council) tart nyilvános előadást Animal metaphors in sources from the Age of Christianization in Central Europe címmel a Central European University Nádor utcai kampuszán.

The Christianization Age in Central Europe is a milieu of continuous encounter among peoples from different cultural and ethnical environments and of efforts from the Christian side to evangelize and extend the religion of Christ. Animalization and dehumanization of the Other is part of the Christian narrative from the period. The lecture will present the use of animal metaphors in sources related to the Christianization process in the 10th-11th centuries. The animal as a symbol is ambivalent, it may convey positive as well as negative meanings to evoke to a certain particular human behaviour or attributed characteristics. Religious infidelity, an aspect of the Other’s identity and characterization, is a term that comprises a wide spectrum of adversaries to the Christian faith, but also of Christian sinners. The lecture will introduce the nuances among the different cases, as well as future research perspectives.
