Upcoming Events


Each January for the past several years, the Michigan Center for Early Christian Studies has been cosponsoring an event in recognition of MLK Day Celebration and will do so again in 2023.  The motivation for this endeavor is in keeping with our Mission of promoting Christian literacy in ways that with involve the general public in order to further our Vision of seeking to promote the study of early Christianity as one of the major foundations of Western Culture. 

We invite you to join us for a free January 25, 2023 7:00 ET zoom lecture by Dr. Lisa Bowens of Princeton Theological Seminary as she links the influence of biblical references to Martin Luther King, Jr.’s writings which show his passion for equality and justice. Her talk is titled, “Glimpses of Resistance: Snapshots of Prophetic and Apocalyptic Eschatology in the Writings of Martin Luther King, Jr.”:

“What role does prophetic and apocalyptic eschatology play in Martin Luther King, Jr’s resistance to injustice? Although scholars often juxtapose prophetic and apocalyptic eschatology, an examination of some of King’s writings demonstrates a dynamic interplay between African American experience and these two types of eschatologies. For King, both eschatologies function significantly for black resistance to white supremacy and black articulation of equality and liberation.”

  1. I am interested in the history and art of the Armenian people. Thank you.

    1. Ms. Rosso, We hope you were able to register and will join us Thursday, this week, May 12, at 3 PM Eastern Daylight Savings time in the US (which we believe is 9 PM in Italy). Let me know if you have difficulty registering.
      At the present time we do not have plans to offer another event on Armenian Art, at least as it relates to our organization’s main interest in promoting the study of early Christianity.
      Thank you for your interest in our event.
      Jim Lepkowski, President, Michigan Center for Early Christian Studies Board of Directors
