All are welcome to this event which will take place at 8pm on Tuesday, May 6 in Christ Church Cathedral, Dublin.
The lecture will be delivered by Margaret Barker who was awarded a D.D. by the Archbishop of Canterbury in 2008 âin recognition of her work on the Jerusalem Temple and the origins of Christian Liturgy, which has made a significantly new contribution to our understanding of the New Testament and opened up important fields for research.
Dr Barkerâs lecture will be based on her 2012 book, Creation: A Biblical Vision for the Environment. She writes not only as a biblical scholar and Methodist preacher, but as a participant for many years in the ongoing symposium, Religion, Science and the Environment, convened by -The Green Patriarchâ, HAH Bartholomew I.
