Due to the Covid-19 situation, The Aristotelian Society will be holding its meetings online via Zoom until further notice. To join the presentation and discussion period for each talk you will need to follow this link. If you have any problems or concerns about the software, please contact mail@aristoteliansociety.org.uk. You do not need to have a Zoom account or to download anything in advance but we have found that the software works better on Google Chrome or Firefox, rather than other browsers.  Please log into the “waiting room” at least 5 minutes in advance of the talk - so by 17:25 next Monday.

Leverhulme Lectures on “The Reception of Neoplatonism in Armenia” | 17:00 | Online

Speaker: Valentina Calzolari (Leverhulme Visiting Professor, University of Oxford, Professor of Armenian Studies, University of Geneva)

Title: The Reception of the Neoplatonic Works in Armenia in the Middle Ages and the Early Modern Period

Organiser: Theo M. van Lint, Calouste Gulbenkian Professor of Armenian Studies, Faculty of Oriental Studies and Pembroke College

Launch Meeting - Zoom

The four Leverhulme Lectures will stress how late ancient Neoplatonism was received and transmited to Armenia over the centuries. Special emphasis will be placed on the corpus of the Armenian translations of the Greek commentaries on Aristotelian logic by David, a Neoplatonist who taught at the School of Alexandria in the 6th century. Moreover, they will examine the construction of the legend of David in the Armenian tradition, and its contribution to the fashioning of Armenian identity, both cultural and national - a contribution which endured to the end of the 19th century.
