Show Notes

Arthur Holder is a priest of the Episcopal Church and also a historian and professor of Christian Spirituality at the Graduate Theological Union in Berkeley, where for many years he served as dean and Vice President of Academic Affairs. His current research explores how medieval Christians imagined what it means to see God and become like God – theological subjects that inform several branches of Christianity, including the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. On this episode of the Faith and Imagination podcast, we talked about the implications of these doctrines in the medieval period and in our own.

Interview by Matthew Wickman, Founding Director, BYU Humanities Center.

Produced and edited by Brooke Browne and Sam Jacob.
