Theology and Legacy
A conference in Oxford engaging with Tillich’s work.
14th-15th July 2014 – http://tillichoxford2014.wordpress.com
Paul Tillich features on anyone’s list of most significant and influential 20th Century theologians. In an age where it is tempting to retreat into intra-theological discussion or dismiss the secular world, Tillich’s vision for a theology which engages with culture and connects religious language with philosophical reflection continues to influence and provoke contemporary theological reflection.
This conference aims to stimulate and provide a platform for current work on Paul Tillich in anticipation of the commencement of the publication of the Collected Works in English from 2015, as well as providing space and time for scholars with an interest in Tillich’s work to meet, get to know each other, and discuss their work.
Call for Papers: Alongside keynote speakers (Reinhold Bernhardt, Marc Boss, Douglas Hedley, Anne-Marie Reijnen, and Christoph Schwöbel), we welcome the submission of abstracts for 20 minute papers which will provoke engagement with and discussion of Paul Tillich’s theology. For example:
- Explorations of aspects of Tillich’s theology
- Tillich’s intellectual development
- Tillich’s influence on other thinkers
- Applications of Tillich’s approach
Please send abstracts of between 300 – 500 words to email@example.com by Friday 14th February 2014, with a short biographical note.
This conference is sponsored by Ertegun House, St Benet’s Hall and the Oxford Centre for Theology and Modern European Thought, and convened by Werner G. Jeanrond (St. Benet’s Hall, Oxford), Russell Re Manning (Aberdeen) and Samuel Shearn (Ertegun House, Oxford).
