Students attend Northern Universities’ Postgraduate Day For Biblical Studies 2019

On 28 May 2019, PhD students and staff from the Centre for Biblical Studies travelled to Durham for the Northern Universities’ Postgraduate Day For Biblical Studies.

The event brought together students from The University of Manchester, Durham University and The University of Edinburgh.

The day comprised of a number of student papers on a range of biblical themes and was concluded by a keynote address from Professor Francis Watson (Durham).

The full programme of events is detailed below, but the contributions from Manchester were:

  • David Bell - “The Lord as ἔκδικος in 1 Thess 4:6: on Whose Behalf?”
  • Anna Budhi - “Cicero’s Unshakable Virtus and the Masculinity of Jesus the Defendant”
  • Justin Daneshmand - “Secret, Mystery, or Something Else?: A Proposal for Reconceptualising the So-Called ‘Messianic Secret’ or ‘Suffering Secret’ in Luke”
  • Siobhán Jolley - “Killing Adam’s Eve: Latent Biblical Imagery in BBC America’s Killing Eve”

The success of the day marked the continuation of a now established link between the centres at these three universities and reflected the breadth and depth of research that is being undertaken in the field of biblical studies.

Thanks must be offered to Durham University for their hospitality in hosting the event, and we look forward to continuing the collaboration in years to come.
