The activities at the Centre are supported by several academic staff.
At the core of the Centre for the Study of Christian Origins ( CSCO) are researchers in the School of Divinity with an established interest and expertise in one or more of the following:
- the New Testament
- other early Christian writings or evidence
- the religious, linguistic, literary and historical 'environment' of early Christianity
There is no particular privileging of core personnel as to roles or authority.
Rather, this core group is identified as indicating a critical mass of scholarship within CSCO.
