Gifford Lecture: Voices and silence in Tanakh and Christian New Testament
Monday, April 23, 2012 from 5:30 PM to 6:30 PM (BST)
Edinburgh, United Kingdom
Please join us for the Gifford Lecture: Voices and silence in Tanakh and Christian New Testament
First lecture in the "Silence in Christian History: the witness of Holmes's Dog" series by Diarmaid MacCulloch Kt, Professor of the History of the Church at Oxford.
This lecture discusses a change in emphasis between the Hebrew Scripture and what Christians made of what is arguably a minority positive strand in Judaic thinking on silence: the place of silence in the first Christian attempts to understand the significance of Jesus Christ, and its relationship to the formation of the Church.
Doors open at 5.00pm.
This event may be photographed and/or recorded for promotional or recruitment materials for the University and University approved third parties.
