Roundtable on Religion

Axel and Margaret Ax:son Johnson Foundation organises a series Roundtables on Religion with a group of scholars from History of Religions, Theology, Psychology, Philosophy, and Anthropology to reflect on questions pertaining to the revitalisation of the discipline of History of Religions.

February’s Roundtable on Religion at Halewell was dedicated to discussing the religious idea and phenomenon of Theurgy, from the neoplatonic origins of theurgy and its different expression during Late Antiquity; the understanding and development of the idea during the Renaissance, and also brought in contemporary views.

Moderated by Louise Belfrage.
