This collaborative seminar meets in the Gibbs Room at Keble College on alternate Wednesdays 8.15-9.45 beginning with breakfast, to discuss topics and texts in the development of biblical and early Christian faith and practice. The subject focus varies, but may include Jewish or early Christian primary sources, classic or important recent publications, or alternatively research in progress by members of the group. Suggestions for future work are always welcome; please contact Prof. Bockmuehl for further information or to be added to the mailing list.
