Postgraduate Research Conference 2017

Last June, as Trinity welcomed its postgraduate students from around the world to come to Bristol for three days of presentations, discussion, and workshops, we were pleased to welcome author and New Testament scholar Prof NT Wright from the University of St Andrews to the conference as this year’s senior scholar.

Prof Wright spoke on the topic of ‘History, Eschatology and New Creation: How the Early Christians Saw God’s Activity in Jesus,’ and, after supper together, he met for a fireside chat with postgraduate students at a local Bristol pub. He also gave a public lecture on the topic of his new book, The Royal Revolution: Fresh Perspectives on the Cross.

During the conference, 26 postgraduate students presented papers related to their research topics, and all had the option to attend a publishing workshop presented by a commissioning editor from T&T Clark. First-year doctoral student Bruce Henning was awarded the annual prize for his essay ‘The Matthean Jesus’ Broad, Eschatological Use of Scripture, with Isaiah 61:1-3 as a Test Case.’

Next year’s guest scholar will be internationally recognised systematic theologian Rev Dr Katherine Sonderegger from Virginia Theological Seminary.
