THE MEOWING NUNS – Tuesday, March 27 at 6:30 p.m.
Featuring Temple Artist Theresa Anderson and Miguel De La Torre, Professor of Social Ethics and Latina Studies at the Iliff School of Theology
In 17th Century France, there is a recorded case of nuns who, having experienced abuse in the convent, one-by-one went out to the town square and began to meow loudly, non-stop, for days. The town folk hired armed guards to beat the nuns and send them in retreat, back to the convent. This presentation will feature a discussion about Temple Artist Theresa Anderson’s recent performance based on this tale, “When I Was A Kitten,” along with co-presenter, Professor Miquel De La Torre, who will discuss the history of civil disobedience in religion and other forms of religious-based rebellions.
