Cracking the Monolith: Digging in the Dirt

10th November - 10th November 2018



11.15am

Alan Cadwallader delivers this year’s Robinson-Spong public lecture, considering the challenge of material culture to metaphysical readings of the
Bible.

Alan Cadwallader has been involved in education and research for over three decades. He especially enjoys the dirt of ancient artefacts, the dust of old manuscripts and the excitement of new discoveries. He regularly leads workshops spanning everything from human sexuality to the environment, from faith to archaeology. He is a world authority on the ancient site of Colossae in south-west Turkey and the work of bible translation in the Nineteenth Century. An Anglican priest, Alan now researches and writes out of the Centre for Public and Contextual Theology at Charles Sturt University in Canberra, Australia.

Tickets are priced at £10 which includes tea / coffee before the lecture.
