Naked in the Garden of Eden: Jewish, Christian, and Muslim Perspectives

Wednesday, April 27, 2016 - 4:00pm to 6:00pm
UA Poetry Center, 1508 E. Helen St.

Family reunions can be opportunities for siblings born of the same parent to join together to share experiences and reflect upon what they continue to hold in common and where, over the years, their different paths have led them. Jews, Christians and Muslims are members of the Abrahamic family of faith since Judaism, Christianity, and Islam all claim descent from the family of Abraham, Hagar and Sarah. Yet despite their common origins, they have followed their separate paths, not always in ways that are respectful of one another. The UA Institute for the Study of Religion and Culture and its co-sponsors invite you to participate in this third session of “The Abrahamic Family Reunion.” The panelists will explore possible meanings of Adam and Eve’s transition from nakedness to being clothed as depicted in the Book of Genesis and the Quran.
