I am writing to invite you to a conference to mark the launch the Centre for the Study of the Bible in the Humanities (CBH) in Oriel College, 17–18 October 2018.
The mission of the Centre for the Study of the Bible in the Humanities is to energize and revitalize scholarly engagement with biblical texts and related philological, interpretive and religious traditions across the Arts and Humanities. Based in Oriel College at the University of Oxford, CBH explores the ongoing vitality of Scripture through research projects, academic conferences, postgraduate research seminars and workshops. See our website for this coming year’s seminars and workshops. Here is the link with all the schedules for 2018-2019.
The conference, entitled ‘The Bible and the Humanities’, will bring researchers from Biblical Studies, Early Christianity, Ancient Judaism, Classics, Philosophy, Cultural Studies, English Literature and German Studies together for a shared discussion of philology and biblical traditions, renewing relationships across these disciplines. The full conference description and schedule can both be found on the CBH website, as can the conference registration page. If you can attend, please register as soon as you can so that we may plan accordingly. There is no registration fee and you are most welcome to attend.
I look forward not only to seeing you at the conference, but also to your continuing engagement with our new centre in Oxford.
With my very best wishes,
