About the Sarum Summer School 2022: Texts and the Christian Tradition course
Come to Sarum College for a week of deep exploration of Dietrich Bonhoeffer’s Letters and Papers from Prison as it relates to the Christian Tradition.
External contributors include Joanna Tarasenko, Dr Reggie Williams, The Revd Dr Dan Buttry, and The Revd Dr Tim Boniface who will offer jazz entertainment and an improvised response to theological poetry as an example of how theology and faith can be explored through music. Professor James Woodward will share his love of wine.
The theology, jazz and wine evening will be held at 7.30pm on Wednesday 6 July.
This is an opportunity to have a week study break in the beautiful Salisbury Cathedral Close, where residential participants enjoy full board, access to the library and to the pattern of liturgy at Salisbury Cathedral. During the week, you will critically engage with the text using particular lenses to enable deeper consideration of its meaning, significance, impact and longevity for the Christian spiritual tradition, its adherents, and/or the wider cultural context.
Why not stay over the weekend to enjoy other city events? On 7 July Minette Waters will be talking about the Future of Farming at Arundells. Salisbury Museum has exhibitions on Thomas Hardy and insects and the artistic imagination. Outside the Close, Salisbury Playhouse is offering The Full Monty
