Seminar poster

Professor John Barclay (University of Durham and CIP Visiting Fellow) will give a talk on 'The Support of the Poor in early Judaism and early Christianity: A Comparison'. Professor William Horbury will be the respondent.

Early Christianity inherited much from its Jewish matrix in concern for the poor, in ethos and theological rationale - but their social networks were different, and differently constituted. Prof Barclay's talk will enquire if this caused differences in the organisation, reach and rationale for their respective support systems for and among the poor. One emergent theme will be the significance of 'weak links'; another, the Christological reconfiguration of Jewish theology. 

Students and colleagues from all disciplines are warmly invited to attend - if you need further information, do contact Dr Giles Waller.  Lunch will be served beforehand.
