Christianity as World Religion, from Constantine the Great to Elizabeth I

St. John the Evangelist, 1114 River Rd. Barrytown, NY  12:30 pm – 1:30 pm
When the Roman Empire changed its view of Christianity, from persecuting it as a *superstitio* to accepting that it was a *religio*, the Church acclaimed Constantine as an agent of God. He returned the favor by a steady increase of privileges for Catholics, until the Empire became a Christian preserve. Once the connection between Church and State was forged, however, it provoked a series of unintended consequences that included the Reformation. That process saw the emergence of a Protestant empire at odds with Catholic claimants to the mantle of Constantine.The lecture series begins on Friday, October 4, and continues on the
following Fridays: October 11, 18, 25, and November 1. All lectures in the series are sponsored by the Institute of Advanced Theology and take place at the Church of St. John the Evangelist at 1114 River Road, Barrytown, NY. Lunch is at noon consisting of soup, bread, dessert, coffee and tea at a cost of $6.00. The presentation begins at 12:30 p.m. followed by a question and answer period.

An Interactive Lecture-Demonstration
by Sitar Maestro
Sugato Nag

Olin, Room 104  7:00 pm – 8:30 pm
Pandit (or maestro) Sugato Nag is one of the finest contemporary artistes in the North Indian classical music tradition. A sitar virtuoso, his style presents a unique synthesis of the austere classicism of the Shahjahanpore Sarode Tradition in which he was trained and the intricate beauty of the more modern Imdadkhani Style. His lecture-demonstration will focus on introducing the audience to Hindustani or North Indian classical music, especially with respect to its implementation on the sitar.

All are welcome.

"Sex, Religion, and Secular Cunning"

Olin, Room 102  5:00 pm
Mayanthi Fernando
University of California & Wesleyan UniversityHow does the public/private distinction so central to secular-liberal democracy inflect the secular state's regulation of sex and religion? Focusing on contemporary France, this talk analyzes how political and legal practices aimed at securing secularity by rendering both sex and religion private paradoxically compel Muslim women to reveal in public the innermost details of their sexual and religious lives. That dual incitement to hide and to exhibit, and the grim consequences of exhibiting that which must be hidden, constitute "the cunning of secular power." Mayanthi Fernando is Assistant Professor Anthropology at the University of California, Santa Cruz. She is currently a visiting professor of Feminist, Gender, and Sexuality Studies at Wesleyan University for Spring 2013. Her first book is Asymmetries of the Republic: Islam, Secularism, and the Future of France, forthcoming from Duke University Press.
