Christian Lehnert "Auf der Schwelle. Von Religion und Poesie"

Poetics lectures: 5 April | 26 April | 10 May | 24 May 2022
Tuesdays 7 p.m., Vienna University Main Building: Lecture Hall 6.

The poet and theologian Christian Lehnert seeks out thresholds in four lectures. At the borders of language, he explores the kinship of poetic and religious search movements into the unsaid. The silencing of God on the cross and the opposing idea of creation as a linguistic event form the points of reference from which Christianity appears as a linguistic force that can never remain in what is said.
