Dr. Elizabeth Schussler Fiorenza gives the Burke Lecture talking about Scripture and Empire, basically taking out of her book The Power of the Word: Scripture and the Rhetoric of Empire. I love me some good ’empire’ talk.
Elizabeth Schussler Fiorenza of the Harvard Divinity School has done pioneering work in biblical interpretation and feminist theology. She explores how the power of empire has historically shaped Christian Scriptures but also how it continues to shape our self-understanding and public discourse in the present.
