MacArthur “Genius” andAward-winning Religious Scholar
in Conversation with Pico Iyer (2019/2020 Lectures)
“The country’s most popular historian of religion.” The Washington Post
Renowned religious scholar Elaine Pagels is the National Book Award-winning author of The Gnostic Gospels and bestselling books including Beyond Belief, Adam, Eve and the Serpent and Revelations. Her newest book, Why Religion?, explores a question that took on profound urgency when Pagels was dealing with unimaginable loss – the death of her young son, followed a year later by the shocking loss of her husband. A professor at Princeton University who has been awarded the Rockefeller, Guggenheim and MacArthur fellowships in three consecutive years, Pagels looks back on a rich life of learning, writing, loving, suffering and seeking truth.
