Bridges and Boundaries: The Role of The Virgin Mary in Faith and Culture

Date:
Thursday 08 July 2021 - Saturday 10 July 2021
Venue:
Shannon Suite

This conference will focus on the role of the Virgin Mary as a point of mediation.

She is a link between the three Abrahamic faiths as a Jewish mother whose son Jesus is worshipped by Christians and revered by Muslims; and a sacred female symbol who has inspired diverse works of culture across the centuries.

The speakers will explore the significance of the Virgin Mary as a bridge between different faith traditions; and they will also examine the manifold ways in which the Marian image traverses boundaries in both theology and popular culture.

Speakers include:

  • Rev. Johann Roten, S.M. (The International Marian Research Institute, University of Dayton, US)
  • Professor Salvador Ryan (St Patrick’s College, Maynooth, Ireland)
  • Dr Reza Shah-Kazemi (The Institute of Ismaili Studies)
  • Professor Zeki Saritoprak (John Carroll University, US)
  • Dr Jacob Phillips (St Mary’s University)
  • Dr Sarah Jane Boss (The Centre for Marian Studies)
