Conference: The Bible: Culture, Community and Society

An international conference on Scripture and its authority, organised in partnership with Winchester Cathedral and the Wessex Synod of the United Reformed Church

The Department of Theology and Religious Studies is delighted to announce this conference, which is timed as part of Winchester Cathedral’s celebration of the 400th Anniversary of the Authorised Version.

The conference will look at questions of the Bible’s living authority, the challenges of holding onto Scripture as an authoritative text, the role of the Bible in shaping Christian life, and the place of Scripture in public debates.
