If human beings are made in the image of God, what does that imply for our self-understanding? And how does it expand our human understanding of God? The evening’s presentation looks at these questions through the eyes of 13th century theological students in an Armenian monastery, as they dialogue with their teacher on the meaning of Genesis 1:26-27.

There will be a discussion with a panel of members from the faculty of The General Theological Seminary. A wine and cheese reception will follow. For more information, please call 914-636-2003 or email
