The NIJMEGEN PRESTIGE LECTURES IN BIBLICAL STUDIES is an annual prestigious lecture series presented by the Faculty of Religious Studies and Theology of the Radboud University Nijmegen in co-operation with Brill. A leading international scholar in Biblical Studies is invited annually to read a series of lectures in his particular field of speciality. The aim of this lecture series is to create the opportunity for our academically interested community to be exposed to cutting edge research in the field of Biblical Studies.

This year the well-known Prof. dr. Michael Wolter of the University of Bonn in Germany will deliver these prestige lectures. He will read a special paper for the general public and theological students on Paul the Radical Apostel. His life and thoughts that changed the world. In this lecture he will discuss the unique influence and impact of Paul as he journeyed through the ancient world. For understanding the nature of Christianity as religion this lecture is indispensable.

Prof Michael Wolter is Professor of New Testament at the University of Bonn, Germany, as well as honorary professor/researcher at several other international universities (for instance, the Universities of Pretoria and North-West in South Africa). He wrote extensively in several fields in the New Testament in which he is indeed regarded as a world leader. His many books include a standard commentary on the Gospel of Luke, another on Paul’s letter to the Colossians and he is currently busy with the EKK– commentary on Romans – the most important ecumenical commentary series.
