Understanding the Old Testament as Christian Scripture-A conference and a Call for Papers

The field of modern biblical studies has given rise to a great deal of insight and a plethora of information about distinct, ancient writings that we traditionally call the Old Testament. Today, expert specialisation in regard to distinct books of the Bible and their composition is prevalent. However, it is also the case that ancient, medieval, and modern Christian theologians have understood the Old Testament to be a united source, consisting of different authors, styles and genres, and composed in different languages, yet all speaking in one symphonic way as the living Word of God.

This conference brings together a wide array of experts in biblical, patristic, and contemporary theology to reflect on Scripture as the root and source of Christian theology in an ecumenical context.

Call for Papers

For afternoon breakout sessions, we are seeking papers. Paper presentations will be 30 minutes long followed by a brief question and answer period.

Abstracts of 500 words or less must be submitted by 30 September 2023.
