“Eating and Believing: Food in Christian Spirituality”

David Grumett, PhD

Tuesday, November 16 at 5:30–7 p.m.

Warren Auditorium, Mother Rosalie Hill Hall

Free and open to the public. No RSVP required.



There is growing interest in food and spirituality in a wide range of often syncretistic or post-religious movements. Part of the reason for resurgent interest in food spirituality is a wider awareness that belief is embodied. How do we conceive the soul-body relation in order to make sense of food as material really incorporated into our inner being? How does embodied practice mesh with ideas of Christian identity founded primarily on scripture and doctrine? This lecture will not propose definitive answers to such questions, but seek to recover Christian traditions of dietary practice and spark reflection and debate.
