Unlike the canonical gospels of Matthew and Luke, this text extends the birth account back to Mary’s own birth and childhood and presents her as an extraordinary woman suited for the role of mother of God. In the Syriac <em>History of the Blessed Virgin Mary</em>, an account of the <em>Protevangelium</em> is reproduced, but its depiction of Mary is strikingly ordinary. The following talk offers some insights into this shift in portrayal and to the reception history of the <em>Protevangelium of James</em>.</p>Wednesday, October 121318447327International Students and Internshipshttp://www.cwu.edu/career/international-students-and-internships-0Monday, January 26Mon, 26 Jan 2015 17:00:00Academic,Seminars & Workshops,Training & Professional Development,Other<p><strong>CWU Ellensburg, Academic &amp; Research Commons (ARC) at Brooks Library</strong></p><p>A joint workshop with OISP.
