Lectio Divina

18 October 2017, 17:00 - 19:00

Seminar Room SG2, Alison Richard Building

David Foster (Benedictine Monk)
Richard Irvine  (Open University)

 

The Christian tradition views the daily reading of scripture, or Lectio Divina, as a spiritual practice, but recent commentators have likened it to a form of literary criticism. This session asks what attention, repetition and liturgical time does to the reading of a text. 


Papers are pre-circulated and should be read in advance.
Please contact Dr Ruth Jackson (rej34@cam.ac.uk) to sign up and receive the readings by email.
