Free lunch and lecture April 21: Multicultural Lindisfarne

Free Lecture & Lunch: Multicultural Lindisfarne by Doug Burger, Tues, April 21,12-1:30pm UMC 415. In 635, at the request of the fierce Anglo-Saxon King Oswald, the Irish monk, Aidan, began a Christian mission in Lindisfarne. He came with Celtic sensibilities to a Viking-like kingdom with its culture of battle loyalties. The interaction of these three “Christianities” perhaps provides an instructive example of the ways in which we might be influenced by our own culture in our religious understandings.
