Date: Time: 21:45 Location: Cube 221

NIGHT TALK - Theologian Frank Bosman will look into the depiction of the Seven Deadly Sins in popular games like The Binding of Isaac, Darksiders III, and Dante’s Inferno. (language: English)

We like them. We hate them. We all know them: Lust, Gluttony, Greed, Sloth, Wrath, Envy, and Pride. They make us human, but at the same time they are the instruments that venture forth the collective history of humankind. We are the Seven Sins, we live them every day. In modern video games, the idea of the Seven Sins is often connected to the protagonists in the game. The sins are modeled to reflect our own inner world and the struggle in it between the forces of good and evil. Theologian Frank Bosman (Cobbenhagen Center) will look into the depiction of the Seven Deadly Sins in The Binding of Isaac, Darksiders III, and Dante’s Inferno. Welcome to your new friends, welcome to your own deadly sins!
