The invention of writing profoundly changed mankind’s relation to the divine. It enabled religions to develop and adopt sacred Scriptures, with a varied status in different places or eras.
This relationship between writing and Scriptures will be the focus of a conference entitled:
Origin of Writing—Origin of Scriptures
Wednesday, January 25, 2012 at 8:15 PM, Robertsau Protestant Parish, 86 rue Boecklin, 67000 Strasbourg
We will also discuss the “religions of the book,” and especially the relationship of various Jewish and Christian communities to the “Bible.”
