Hawarden ‘Old Testament in the New’ Conference, 2018

Dear colleagues,

It is once again time to start making firm arrangements for this year’s Hawarden Seminar on the OT in the New. You are all very welcome to join us at Gladstone’s Library from the evening of Thursday 22nd March to lunchtime on Saturday 24th March 2018. The library staff are ready to receive our bookings in the usual way – i.e. by telephone (01244 532350 – UK; + 44 1244 532350 from outside UK) or email (enquiries@gladlib.org), stating that you are part of the OT in NT seminar, but not via the on-line booking facility (which cannot recognise our block booking). Costs will depend on the type of room you book, but will be in the region of £150 – £180.

We are planning for input from two speakers on developments in Hebrew Bible/inner-biblical allusion (Dr. Katharine Dell from Cambridge and Dr Bill Tooman from St Andrews). Offers of short papers on any topic pertaining directly to the use of the OT in the NT for the rest of the programme are warmly invited, so please email me with your proposals, titles and abstracts by Friday 15th December 2017. I will confirm acceptance (or not) and circulate a draft programme in mid-January as usual.

Looking forward to seeing you in Hawarden in March, and wishing you all the best in the meantime,

Professor of New Testament and Early Judaism/Head of Theology
