Posted by Simon Cross  ·  Be the first to comment

The former Bishop of Durham, and best selling author N.T. Wright has been announced as one of the key contributors to the 2012 St Andrews conference on Scripture and Christian Theology.

The conference, which will focus on the book of Galatians, is the fourth to be organised by the University, and will see notable scholars and theologians gather to consider the text from a number of perspectives. 

Alongside Bishop Wright, who is now a Professor of New Testament and Christian Origins atSt Andrews, those contributing include Prof Richard Hays, of Duke Divinity School, USA, and Prof Oliver O’Donavan, of Edingburgh University.

Biblical scholars from around the world are expected to take part in the conference, which will see Galatians considered from every angle, from art to politics.

And theologians who wish to present a short paper at the conference are being invited to send 300 word abstracts to the organisers, who are particularly looking for proposals relating the book of Galatians to subjects such art, ethics, and eschatology.

More information, and details of how to register can be found on the St Andrews University website.
