Event Details

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.
