Jesus, African Women and Divine Reason for a Dying World
Isabel Mukonyora, D.Phil. (Oxon), Professor of Religious Studies at Western Kentucky University, USA.
Professor Isabel Mukonyora is an international scholar of religion whose training began with an undergraduate degree in Theology, followed by a Master of Letters degree in the History of Religions from the University of Aberdeen in Scotland (1989), and a Doctor of Philosophy degree from the Faculty of Theology at Oxford University, UK .
In this lecture, Professor Mukonyora will compare the ideas and values embedded in the roles of women as dialogue partners for Jesus in the oral tradition for the difficult times of the origins of Christianity, with other ideas and values of African women as traditional "guardians of wisdom" for a patriarchal world that is now predominantly Christianity and African.
