International Women's Day Panel Event: "Lost in Translation: Women and Scripture"

To celebrate International Women’s Day next month, the University of Edinburgh’s School of Divinity is to hold a panel discussion about how women are often “translated out” of sacred texts, from Jesus’ female disciples to Paul’s companion Apostles. Panellists from New College, which is marking its 175th anniversary, include Professor Helen Bond and Dr Sara Parvis, and the event, will be chaired by Professor John Barton, of the University of Oxford. 

This event will take place online on Monday 8th March 2021, from 12pm - 2pm (GMT).
