Exegesis, from East to West

Heythrop College, London, 16th February 2013

The Society's fourth one-day conference will take place on 16th February 2013 and we are delighted that it will be hosted by the Centre for Christianity and Interreligious Dialogue at Heythrop College, London. The conference will consider the influence of modes of exegesis originating in one religious tradition on the reading of the scriptures of another. Areas covered will be Latin and Greek Christianity, Islam, Judaism and Hinduism, involving examples of both dialogue and polemic.

The speakers will include: Reinhart Ceulemans (Goettingen), Martin Ganeri (Heythrop), Anthony Lappin (Manchester), Sergio la Porta (Fresno, CA), Lesley Smith (Oxford), David Thomas (Birmingham), Joanna Weinberg (Oxford). The day will also include a guided visit to relevant galleries at the nearby Victoria & Albert Museum.
