Come to our conference on cities and early Christianity!


Following our very successful 2014 conference on evil in second temple Judaism and early Christianity, the St Mary’s University Centre for Social Scientific Study of the Bible announces this exciting conference:

Cities of God?

An Interdisciplinary Assessment of Early Christian Engagement with the Ancient Urban Environment(s)

Friday 22 and Saturday 23 May 2015, at St Mary’s University, Twickenham

This will be a fascinating and stimulating conversation between Classicists, New Testament scholars and Human Geographers, with a top class list of speakers, including a keynote paper by Professor Paul Trebilco (University of Otago, New Zealand), an acknowledged expert on Christianity in ancient Ephesus. A book containing the papers will follow. We also warmly invite offers of papers from research students and established scholars: they should be emailed to me by 1 March 2015.
