updated: 
Monday, March 10, 2014 - 1:44pm

In Religion and Violence, Hent de Vries argues that the "critical resources of the historical phenomenon called religion […] constitute an immense archive of concepts and figures, practices and dispositions, whose analytical yet highly ambiguous potential for the present age we have not yet begun to fathom" (35). This panel assumes that the concept and figure of redemption represents such an archival site that, in the midst of the "return to religion" that we are witnessing today, is worth our time re-opening.
