Panel to Examine How Ancient Texts Discuss Handling Pain
How should we understand pain? Embrace it as a gift? Avoid it like the plague? Endure it as a necessary evil? Come join us at Perkins School of Theology, Southern Methodist University, for a panel discussion from 7:30 to 9 p.m. Thursday, March 30, in the Great Hall at Elizabeth Perkins Prothro Hall to see what insight we can garner on handling pain from ancient texts such as Homer’s Iliad, the Bible, the Dead Sea Scrolls, Galen’s On the Affected Parts and many others.
