10-13 July 2012, St Andrews
We are pleased to announce the fourth St Andrews conference on Scripture and Christian Theology. Since the first conference on the Gospel of John in 2003, the St Andrews conferences have been recognized as amongst the most important occasions when biblical scholars and systematic theologians are brought together in conversation about a biblical text. With the book of Galatians as our key text, biblical scholars and theologians of the Christian tradition will gather to work out how exegesis and theology meet, critique and inform each other.
Call for Papers
We invite proposals for short papers that relate Galatians to Christian theology and culture, including:
Galatians & Art
Galatians & Christian Doctrine
Galatians & Ethics
Galatians & the History of Interpretation
Galatians & Eschatology
Jewish and Christian Readings of Galatians.
