The Comparative Mysticisms conference aims to bring together several scholars from different disciplines and areas of study to examine how a variety of traditions has tried to express direct experience with the divine. A mystical event presents as a serious paradox: it is an event entirely dissimilar to anything else, but offers assimilation to the divine, which must be conveyed in comprehensible terms, which form the subject of this conference.
Sponsored by the Princeton University Humanities Council, Comparative Antiquity: A Humanities Council Global Initiative, Princeton University Department of Classics, and the Princeton University Seeger Center for Hellenic Studies.
