Conference: Evil in Second Temple Judaism and Early Christianity
23rd - 24th May 2014

As part of the ongoing research program of the Centre for the Social-Scientific Study of the Bible, an international group of biblical scholars will gather at St Mary’s University [Twickenham, London] in order to present research on the conception and significance of “evil” in Second Temple Judaism and early Christianity.

The keynote speaker will be Professor Loren Stuckenbruck of LMU-München, and will be joined by other invited speakers who will approach the topic from cultural, theological, historical, and textual perspectives. There is also some room for proposals for short papers*.

The event will be held in the beautiful Waldegrave Drawing Room on the St Mary's campus, and members of the public who are interested in this exciting topic are welcome to attend.

*Please send an abstract to chris.keith@smuc.ac.uk. The deadline for submission of abstracts is Tuesday 1st April.
Evil in this area is a popular topic these days. Sounds like an interesting conference.
