The Summer Biblical Study has moved to Cambridge beginning with 2014 and information about the next year’s sessions is already available. Richard Garner, the treasurer of the charity organizing this event, has sent me the brochure of the programme which I am pleased to publish. See HERE the PDF file.
I was privileged to attend the 2013 programme in Oxford and I found it very informative. Although I would like to attend the sessions next year, I am not sure I will be able to. It’s on my wishlist, anyway.
Below is some information received from Richard Garner. As you can see, next year’s schedule boasts two “heavy guns” in the field of biblical studies: R. Bauckham and L. Hurtado. I envy those who will be able to listen to their lectures.
This year the publicity is being sent out much earlier than usual because it is more important than ever that we attract a good numbers this summer. We have at least 50 resident places available in each week, and our relocation from Oxford to Robinson College Cambridge could affect attendances.
This year’s lecturers are:
Professor Richard Bauckham, Ridley Hall, Cambridge
Dr Carly Crouch, University of Nottingham
Professor David Catchpole, Sarum College, Salisbury
Revd Dr Malcolm Guite, Girton College, Cambridge
Dr Jonathan Stökl, Kings College, London
Professor Larry Hurtado, University of Edinburgh
Julia Weiner, Regent’s University, London
The trustees are very conscious that the cost of residential summer schools can be a barrier to participation, and have made every effort to keep our prices as low as possible. Our Lecture Fees have been held for the fifth year in a row at £100 per week for resident participants, and the cost of full board en-suite accommodation (five nights) at £510 is £100 lower than we had to charge for similar accommodation last year in Oxford. The non-resident option for people who prefer to make their own arrangements for meals and accommodation is £160, and you should contact me if you need information about prices as a non-resident with some meals. Alternatively, Robinson College has an on-site cafe providing drinks and light refreshments.
I hope that it will be possible for you to join us next summer or some time in the future.
