The Call of Sophia

with Dr Simon Wilson  

Tuesday 21st February 2023 

 6.30-8.00pm (UK time) via Zoom

This presentation will look at Sophia, or Woman Wisdom, who calls to each of us personally, to desire her and devote ourselves to her. She was present in and at the moment of the creation of the cosmos: to respond with desire for her is to respond with desire for the world.

We will examine her appearance in the Old Testament and her re-appearance in the twentieth century, tracking some of the transformations which our relationship with her may demand of us. We will also ask whether she is essentially a female figure or, rather, the presence of liberating otherness in the world.
