The University of Aberdeen will host a conference in Christian Ethics featuring world-renowned theologians and ethicists this week.
The conference, The Freedom of a Christian Ethicist, which takes place on October 24 and 25, will bring together major theologians and intellectuals to consider the significance of the Reformation and its legacy for contemporary ethics and politics.
Speakers at the conference will be Professor Stanley Hauerwas (Duke and Aberdeen University), Professor Jennifer Herdt (Yale Divinity School), Professor Hans Ulrich (Erlangen University), Professor Gerald McKenny (The University of Notre Dame), Professor Michael Banner (Trinity College, Cambridge), Dr Rachel Muers (University of Leeds), Dr Brian Brock (Aberdeen University) and Professor Paul Martens (Baylor University).
The conference is cosponsored by the University of Aberdeen’s School of Divinity, History and Philosophy and the Cambridge-based Kirby Laing Institute for Christian Ethics.
Professor John Swinton, Chair in Divinity and Religious Studies at the University of Aberdeen, said: “This conference is a must for anyone with a serious interest in Christian ethics. It's a unique opportunity to engage with some of the world’s leading ethicists and to reflect on some of the key issues that face Christians in a world that is becoming increasingly complex and more than a little confusing. Who knows, maybe, together, we can change the world a little.”
The conference will take place at the King’s College Conference Centre on Friday, October 24 and Saturday, October 25. Registration is £20. For a full programme and to register go to www.abdn.ac.uk/events/theologicalethics/
