Cafe Theologique: 'Recycling Old Wineskins? Reading the Old Testament in Cultural Context'

Run in collaboration between the University Chaplaincy and the Bishop of Oxford, Café Theologique is a place where, for the price of a cup of coffee or a glass of wine, anyone can come to explore the latest ideas in theology.

On Monday 20th May, Robin Baker, Professor of Old Testament and Ancient Near Eastern Studies at the University of Winchester, explores how to deal with the trickier parts of Jewish-Christian Scriptures. Robin has written extensively on the strange world of the Bible including the books of Judges and Jeremiah. His focus is particularly on the relationship between the Old Testament and Assyrian and Babylonian beliefs and cultic practice, and reflections of Mesopotamian literature in the Hebrew Bible.

Admission free. No booking required.
