Emory University: Sacrifice as Creation

Emory University: Creation Stories project

 In a lecture titled Sacrifice as Creation, Dr. Marko Geslani from Emory¹s Department of Religion will explore how in late-Vedic understanding, sacrifice was deeply implicated in the process of creation. As the gods receded to the status of mythic patrons, the sacrifice itself achieved its own stunning apotheosis; it was thought to possess an endless re-creative capacity, which could be harnessed both for the ordering and renewal of nature and society, and for the “immortality” of the sacrificer.
