Platonic (Pagan and Christian) Responses to Stoic Allegory

The Myth and Religion Study Group presents “Platonic (Pagan and Christian) Responses to Stoic Allegory,” a talk by Ilaria Ramelli of the University of Milan.

Showing how allegory functioned in Middle and Neoplatonic philosophy (Pagan and Christian), Ilaria Ramelli will argue that allegory was part of philosophy in Stoicism. Special attention will be paid to the narratives concerning the arkhe and the telos, the origin and the end of history, which are subject to special exegetical rules.

The lecture will be held on November 15, 2010 from 4-6PM in room 409 of 745 Commonwealth Avenue (STH building).
