Ner Tamid: The Use of An Eternal Flame In Religious Iconography

This session will be a discussion of the importance of the eternal flame throughout history and across religious lines. From ancient Greece and Rome to Judaism, Christianity, and Islam; from Zoroastrianism to Hinduism, an eternal flame burns in many religions. Many more religions involve gods of fire. Participants will be provided with text to assist in the development of ideas as they think about why never-ending fire is of such divine importance. (T)
