Producing Christian Culture: Gospel Text and Gospel Commentary in Medieval Perspective Conference

Prior's Hall, Durham Cathedral, Lewis Ayres (Durham), Giles Gasper (Durham), Helen Foxhall-Forbes (Exeter), Ian Levy (Providence College), and Francis Watson (Durham)

To mark the first exhibition of the Lindisfarne Gospels in Durham, this conference will examine the modes in which early medieval commentators on the texts of scripture projected visions of Christian culture (or counter-culture). Bede's work of commentary and those of other English writers will provide a focus for considering how these visions were communicated into the later middle ages.

Keynote Speakers: Lewis Ayres (Durham), Giles Gasper (Durham), Helen Foxhall-Forbes (Exeter), Ian Levy (Providence College), and Francis Watson (Durham)
