The 10th Annual Women and Religion Lecture Focuses on Women in Scripture

“All About Eve: The Last Word on the First Lady,” is the topic of the 10th annual Women and Religion Lecture Series at 7:00 p.m. on Monday, March 26, in the ballroom of the Mike and Josie Harper Center located at 602 N 20th St.

The lecture, which is free and open to the public, supports the Women and Gender Studies Program at Creighton University.

The speaker, Carol Meyers, Ph.D., is a prominent scholar in the study of women in the biblical world, and a specialist in biblical studies and archaeology. She holds the Mary Grace Wilson Professorship in Religion at Duke University, where she has taught since 1977.

Meyers has published three major archaeological reports and her book, Discovering Eve, is considered a landmark study of women in ancient Israel. Her most recent reference book “Women in Scripture” is the most comprehensive study ever made of women in Jewish and Christian scriptures.
