DThM Summer School 2016

This year’s Summer School for the Doctor of Theology and Ministry (DThM) programme will take place at St John’s College from 12th – 16th September. The Guest Theologian in Residence is Dr Zoë Bennett, speaking on the themes

Public Lecture: 'To see clearly is poetry, prophecy, and religion, - all in one': John Ruskin and the Bible.

Lecture1: A tale of two traditions: the Bible in one hand and the newspaper in the other.

Lecture 2: Narcissus and 'The Bean': reflections on reflexivity in theology.

Lecture 3: 'The greatest thing a human being ever does in this world is to see something and to tell what it saw in a plain way' (John Ruskin): the significance and practice of writing.

For those who are interested in research and further academic study, one of the helpful aspects of the DThM is that the course provides professional training in practical theology and research methods whilst supporting you in developing a research focus. It also invariably involves exploring an issue that will be familiar to those who support you locally. The Summer School provides an opportunity to talk about research projects and hear what others are doing.
