The Garden of Eden as Cosmic Structure - St-Ephrem the Syrian
I go through the image of the Garden of Eden presented in St-Ephrem the Syrian's Hymns on Paradise, discussing how it is a structure of being and experience and relating it to other works, especially St-Gregory of Nyssa's Life of Moses.
The talk was given at Holy Nativity Mission, an Orthodox parish in Sreveport Louisiana in May 2019.
