Professor Graeme Auld
My earlier studies were in the Greek and Latin classics, before I turned to Divinity including Hebrew; and my first stay in Jerusalem was at the end of a trek that began in Greece and Turkey and Syria. Doctoral research started with the French Dominicans in Jerusalem for a year, then in Germany for a year, then back in Edinburgh. My first post was administrative, but with rich research opportunities, as Assistant Director of the British School of Archaeology in Jerusalem. I was President of the Society for Old Testament Study in 2005, and had edited its annual Book List for seven years (1986-92).
