SE Regional Conference on Christianity and Literature

Tuesday, January 14, 2014 - 3:41pm
Palm Beach Atlantic University/SE Conference on Christianity and Literature

Paradise is a subject that has stirred the imaginations of writers for millennia while simultaneously exceeding the scope of artistic representation itself. Poets, playwrights, and novelists have been inspired to describe in various ways that which is indescribable. Language can only approximate visions of paradise occasioned by mystical experiences such as spiritual awakenings, ecstasies, and epiphanies. Conference organizers invite papers that explore how literary artists imagine paradise, from abstract images of height and light to concrete images of sublime mountain peaks and lush seascapes. Papers are also welcome that investigate literary depictions of paradise's dark opposite, hell, and its penitential proving grounds, purgatory.
