BeschreibungInterpreting three conversion accounts, Karl Morrison accents the categorical differences between the experience of conversion and written narratives about it. He explains why experience and text can only be related to each other in fictive ways. The three accounts covered are by Augustine of Hippo, from north Africa during the late Roman Empire; by Herman-Judah, a Jew who lived in Cologne in the twelfth century; and by Constantine Tsatsos, president of the Hellenic Republic in 20th century Athens.
PortraitKarl F. Morrison is Lessing Professor of History and Poetics at Rutgers University. He is the author of several books, including History as a Visual Art in the Twelfth-Century Renaissance and "I Am You": The Hermeneutics of Empathy in Western Literature, Theology, and Art.
