What: Corinth – Paul, People and Politics (Society for the Study of Early Christianity Conference 2011)
Where: Macquarie University, X5B Theatre 1
When: Saturday 14 May, 2011
"In Paul’s letters to the Corinthians we see an early Christian society dealing with factionalism arising from varied interpretations of the Christian message. At the same time, Christianity was trying to define itself within the context of a cosmopolitan Roman city. Who were the main players in Corinth during Paul’s mission there?
What role did politics play in the early Christian church?" Speakers will include Dr Paul Barnett, Professor Larry Welborn, Dr Bruce Winter and more.
The event will also include the launch of The Content and Setting of the Gospel Tradition edited by Professor Alanna Nobbs of Macquarie University and Dr Mark Harding of the Australian College of Theology
