We are glad to inform you of the next lecture that will be held at the Michael Servetus Institute (Villanueva de Sijena, Spain)on May 14th 2006, at 12:00 o'clock.
On this occasion, Mr. Jaume de Marcos will deal with the following topic:“The influence of Erasmus in Servetus' Works”.
As the title indicates, he will analyze in detail the main elements of Erasmus’ works that can be spotted in Michael Servetus’ theology as well as in his social criticism. He will also identify the main similarities and differences amongst both humanists. This lecture is the result of Jaime’s research while he was studying a Master in History of Religions in the Autonomous University of Barcelona (UAB). Given the cutting-edge nature of this research, the Institute will publish during this year a booklet (both in Spanish and English)containing the full research undertook by Jaume.
Jaume de Marcos Andreu was born June 25, 1961, in Barcelona, Spain. He has a B.A. in Anglo-Germanic Philology (1987) and a Master in History of Religions (2005), both from the Autonomous University of Barcelona (UAB). In 1989 he discovered Unitarian Universalism and quickly became quite active in the European Unitarian Universalists network (EUU). In 1996 and 1998 he participated in Unitarian Universalist Leadership Seminars in Germany. In 2000 he started the Unitarian Universalist Religious Society of Spain. He became a counsellor of the Michael Servetus Institute in 2004 and nowadays he is also on the board of directors of the UNESCO Association for Interfaith Dialog and the International Council of Unitarians and Universalists.
We hope to see some of you at the Institute. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you need further details.
