St Augustine Seminar

An international group of 35 New Testament scholars from Anglican and other churches around the world gathered in Lambeth Palace in November 2018.

Convened by Professor Jennifer Strawbridge, Associate Professor in New Testament Studies at Mansfield College in the University of Oxford, the seminar and ongoing work have shaped the theological foundations for the Lambeth Conference, the resources prepared around the first epistle of Peter. The scholars represent a range of Christian traditions and experiences from Australia, Botswana, Brazil, Canada, China, Colombia, Egypt, India, Ireland, Kenya, Nigeria, the Philippines, Singapore, South Africa, Switzerland, the UK and the US.
