University of St Andrews Conference and Call for Papers

September 19, 2011

The University of St Andrews is pleased to announce the fourth conference on Scripture and Christian Theology: Paul’s Letter to the Galatians & Christian Theology. The conference will be held July 10-13, 2012 at the University of St Andrews, Scotland. 

Since the first conference on the Gospel of John in 2003, St Andrews conferences have been recognized as amongst the most important occasions when biblical scholars and systematic theologians are brought together in conversation around a biblical text.  With the book of Galatians as our key text, biblical scholars and theologians of the Christian tradition will gather to work out how exegesis and theology meet, critique and inform each other. 

Call for Papers is now open.  We invite proposals for short papers that relate Galatians to Christian theology and culture including: Galatians & Art; Galatians & Christian Doctrine; Galatians & Ethics; Galatians & the History of Interpretation; Galatians & Eschatology; Jewish and Christian Readings of Galatians.  Abstracts of no more than 300 words should be sent to galatians[at]st-andrews[dot]ac[dot]uk by 1 March 2012 for consideration.
