Keble Theology Workshops

Keble has a tradition of inviting occasional prominent speakers to lead “workshops” on topics of wider interest, designed to serve as a kind of shop window on theology and biblical studies for anyone interested in pursuing graduate study in this area. Formats have included lectures and debates in varying degrees of formality, but always with a lively Question & Answer period at the end – and followed by a glass of wine and further opportunity to engage the speakers informally.
