Sacred narratives bring about one of the strongest emotional aspects of religion. These narratives often bear mythic characteristics and are used to construct a sense of identity and promote ideologies. Prominent examples of the use of mythic narratives in our region are manifested by the combatting forces in Syria and Iraq, each of which claims to have not only moral but also theological supremacy.
This symposium brings together Dr. Benedetta Berti and Mr. Daniel Lav, who will address the topic, each from his particular academic viewpoint.
