WILLIAMS SECULAR

Sundays, 2:30 PM
We’ll read and discuss a passage from the Colloquium Heptaplomeres, a sixteenth-century dialogue about the Abrahamic religions. Seven travelers, each of different faiths, gather in Venice to discuss their beliefs. They disagree on many points, but they maintain a spirited, respectful discussion. Passed around in secret and finally published in 1857, the work serves as a (rare) example of religious tolerance in early modern literature. We’ll send around links to both the reading and the meeting soon. For more information contact
Student Contact: Russell Blakey ’23 (rgb4), Elijah Tamarchenko ’23 (et7)
