Event description

Description

A one day interdisciplinary conference, open to academics of all levels and subjects, to explore the enduring relationship between Religious and Gothic Studies.

The Gothic Bible Project constitutes an interdisciplinary approach to investigating instances within the Bible and Gothic fiction (i.e. literature, drama, and film) that demonstrate an interplay between biblical concepts/iconography and the literary Gothic mode, which began with the publication of Horace Walpole’s The Castle of Otranto (1764-5). From its inception, this literary genre has continued to showcase associations with the Bible, theology, and/or religion; this project seeks to highlight and explore these ongoing relationships. Hosted at the University of Sheffield (United Kingdom), The Gothic Bible Project combines the university’s Sheffield Institute for Interdisciplinary Biblical Studies (SIIBS) and The Centre for the History of the Gothic.
