Event description
Descent of the Dove: Knowing and Loving in Spirit and Truth Pusey House Theological Conference Monday, 4 July to Wednesday, 6 July 2022

About this event

Descent of the Dove: Knowing and Loving in Spirit and Truth will consider the person and work of the Holy Spirit, and the inevitable transformation which any knowledge of, faith in, or encounter with, the Holy Spirit both invites and enables.

We have an inspiring group of speakers to guide and enlighten us on this journey: Lewis Ayres, Richard Conrad, Susan Gillingham, Malcolm Guite, Carol Harrison, Karen Kilby, Matthew Levering, Jack Levison, Andrew Louth, John McGuckin, Oliver O’Donovan, Marcus Plested, Ephraim Radner, Gary Thorne, Graham Tomlin, Robin Ward, Kallistos Ware, Rowan Williams, Judith Wolfe, and N T Wright (more info below).

Pusey House is committed to the discipline and study of Theology from within the worshipping life of the Church, so that our academic endeavours are informed, enriched and sustained by the sacred liturgy and daily offices. The academic programme of the 2022 conference will therefore be interspersed with opportunities for collective worship in the Catholic tradition of the Church of England.

This conference will contribute to the recovery of the Church’s authentic mind and memory, in order to renew our encounter with the risen and ascended Christ, who is ever present in the Church and the world by the Holy Spirit.

The upcoming 2022 conference, ‘The Descent of the Dove: Knowing and Loving in Spirit and Truth’, will be the third of a series following, ‘A Transforming Vision: Knowing and Loving the Triune God’ (2016), and ‘Totus Christus: Knowing and Loving the Son of Man’ (2018). The papers from former conferences have been published by SCM Press as A Transforming Vision (2018) and Christ Unabridged (2020).

Schedule: The conference will start at 2 pm on Monday 4 July, preceded by High Mass with sermon at 11 am, and will conclude on Wednesday 6 July after a concluding address by the Rt Rev’d Rowan Williams, followed by Choral Evensong and sermon at 6:00 pm.

A more detailed programme will be available later this year.

Registration: will be available through the Pusey House website from 15 November 2021. We encourage early registration, as the last two conferences have sold out.

If you have any questions, please email pusey.conference@stx.ox.ac.uk.

The venue: Located in the heart of Oxford, Pusey House was founded to be ‘a house of sacred learning’ dedicated to the memory of the Revd Professor E.B. Pusey, Regius Professor of Hebrew at the University of Oxford. The House is a place where theological study is encouraged alongside a community of worship and prayer. Drawing on the tradition of renewal that inspired the Oxford Movement, we seek to build up a community where a lively and reasonable faith is nourished by the beauty of the liturgy to form disciples in Christ for service in the Church and in the world.

The last two conferences have been sold out.

Organiser Pusey House

Organiser of Pusey House 2022 Theological Conference

Pusey House was opened in 1884 as a memorial to Edward Bouverie Pusey (1800-1882). The House exists to promote theological study and holiness of life, and to provide spiritual counsel and comfort to members of the University, and all who avail themselves of the work and ministry of the House within the Church of England and beyond. In working to renew the Church of England’s Catholic life and witness, Pusey and his colleagues also sought to understand and respond to the most profound needs of society in their day. One of the basic principles of the Oxford Movement was that the life of the mind and the life of prayer belong together, and that holiness of life overflows in ministries of love and service. In different ways and in a different context, the Pusey House today seeks to embody these founding principles.
