2019: Week 1 Speaker Books

Week One :: June 22–28

Moments That Changed the World

How did we get to now? The answers may surprise you. In this week, Chautauqua asks five historians to each choose a little-known moment when the ground shifted beneath humanity’s feet, and examine how those moments impacted the world of today.

• We look at unsung heroes — and villains — as well as unsung moments that altered the course of history.
• History often offers surprises, revealing how and why certain stories are obscured, erased or lesser-known.
• How can those surprises be instructive? How can our newfound knowledge of these moments be useful in our time?

Interfaith Lecture Theme :: Religious Moments that Changed the World

Religion is a human construct that has been evolving since humans began pondering the meaning of life and its purpose, asking questions of origin and destiny, with varying responses creating differing trajectories. In this week the Interfaith Lecture Series presents historians of the world’s religions who will shine a light on “moments” in various traditions that have impacted both the world and the evolution of religion.
