10/25/06: The Afterlife, the Living and the Dead
By Doug Fabrizio
Salt Lake City, UT – Yale historian Carlos Eire says in the Western world we didn't always keep death at a distance or confine it to another dimension. The Protestant Reformation though changed our view of the afterlife, and denied that the living could do anything for the dead or that the dead could intercede for the living. Eire is in Utah to deliver the McMurrin Lecture on Culture and Religion, and joins Doug for a look about what this means for our modern impressions of death.
- Wednesday, October 25 at 8:00 p.m. Carlos Eire will deliver the Sterling M. McMurrin Lecture in Culture and Religion at the Utah Museum of Fine Arts Dumke Auditorium. His presentation, Spiritual Apartheid: Protestantism and the Reformation of the Hereafter, is part of the Hell and its Afterlife Conference presented by the Tanner Humanities Center at the University of Utah.
