The conference honors the 2019 publication of Olivier-Thomas Venard’s A Poetic Christ: Thomist Reflections on Scripture, Language and Reality, translated by Francesca Murphy and Kenneth Oakes. The imminent publication of this text has inspired us to reflect on the project of the future of biblical studies.
This conference seeks to reconnect Word and Wisdom by reclaiming the learned study of the Word of God as inspired Scripture. With the insights of Dei Verbum at the fore, this conference asks: How might a synthesis of history, contemporary philosophy of language, theology of culture, and traditional exegetical resources guide Biblical studies toward a better future? Registration is free but required.
