What's a Highly Romantic and Erotic Poem doing in the Bible? Taking a candid look at the Song of Solomon. Speaker: Rev Keith Plant.
This year we are taking a look at the 'Song of Solomon', a book of the Bible that has intrigued and puzzled scholars and theologians throughout the ages due to its romantic and erotic content.
This evening is free and will consist of a candid look at the various ways the book has been interpreted throughout history. It will also look at its background, analyse its use of romantic and erotic imagery and ascertain what purpose it serves in itself and as part of the Bible.
This talk is part of Stony Words. Please note that it is unsuitable for children.
