St Andrews Symposium of Ancient Jewish and Early Christian Studies

Every other year, Biblical Studies staff and PhD candidates from St Andrews School of Divinity collaborate to host a symposium, attracting top scholars and students from around the world.

2020 Symposium Postponed

Due to the challenges posed by COVID-19 we believe the best course of action is to cancel this summer’s conference. We want to do our part to ensure the safety and well-being of everyone involved. Nonetheless, the Divinity school at St Andrews remains invested in this project and we aim to reorganise the event with the same topic for some time next school year, either in the spring or summer of 2021. Further information will be available once details are finalised.
