Full course description

Description

LIVE IN-PERSON class for adults ages 50 and older!

An account so old some relegate it to myth. Others insist it is history. Modern classics such as Steinbeck’s East of Eden borrow freely from its compelling themes of depravity, self-destruction, guilt, and the price of freedom. Augustine of Hippo used the cautionary tale to formulate Original Sin. We will explore the text for its hidden meanings; was expulsion from the Garden necessary for Free Will? Is humanity inherently sinful? Were Adam and Eve really the first humans? Was the serpent really the devil, or God’s agent?
