Dr Miriam Lindgren Hjälm | Texts, Readers, and the Church: Biblical Studies in Eastern Christianity | public online lecture

The last lecture in Sankt Ignatios College, Stockholm School of Theology public lecture series 2020 will be delivered on Thursday December 3rd, at 1pm, by Dr Miriam Lindgren Hjälm. The subject of her lecture will be “Texts, Readers, and the Church: Biblical Studies in Eastern Christianity”. In her lecture, Dr Hjälm will discuss the relations (and interrelations) between historical and literary criticism, reception history, and hermeneutics. She will argue that these disciplines should be given equally large space within the field of biblical studies to make justice to the complexity of texts and their readers.  

Please note that because of the pandemic it will only be possible to participate in the lecture online. There will be no physical audience.

These lectures are compulsory for Pastoral-pedagogical and Religious Educator program students but we encourage all of our students to take part. Students will be able to find the link to the lecture in their Canvas email on December 3rd, 30 minutes before the lecture begins. 

These are public lectures and open to anyone who wishes to take part. If you would like to watch the lecture online, please fill in the form below and send it back to us with your email address. We will send a Zoom link to you 30 minutes before the lecture begins.

Here is the link to the form.

We also aim to make the lectures available to the public through our YouTube channel. 

We hope through this lecture series to widen the public appreciation and understanding of Eastern Christian studies and to show something of the variety and dynamism of the teaching and research conducted here. In particular we hope that these talks will inspire interest in those who have perhaps been thinking about studying the Christian tradition, particularly from an Orthodox perspective. We look forward to seeing you there.
