What does it mean for something to be ‘the word of God?’ What are the origins, forms, and functions of this concept? This seminar series will investigate what it means within the traditions of Christianity, Islam, Judaism, Buddhism, and Hinduism, with a variety of scholars and thinkers.
The first talk in this new series, coordinated by Professor Sudipta Kaviraj, was given by Professor Gil Anidjar, Columbia University, on February 4, 2015. More information about this talk, as well as the entire Word of God series, is available here.
