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 (firstname.lastname@example.org) to sign up and receive the readings by email.
Open to all. No registration required
