Experts in history, theology and linguistics are set to present at a symposium on Bible translation and the legacy of Martin Luther.
The Moorhouse Symposium will mark 500 years of Luther’s September Testament 1522, a ground-breaking publication of the New Testament.
Professor of New Testament at Trinity College the Reverend Canon Professor Dorothy Lee FAHA said that the event was to celebrate the importance of having the Bible in one’s own language.
“The Bible is central to our faith, regardless of our persuasions in other matters,” Professor Lee said.
The event will feature speakers including Professor Lee, St Paul’s Cathedral emeritus canon and principal of Ridley College the Reverend Canon Dr Peter Adam OAM and Dean of the Anglican Institute at Ridley College the Reverend Canon Dr Rhys Bezzant FRHistS.
The event will include presentations on the Vernacular Greek Bible, translation of the Bible into Indigenous languages in Australia and a segment on the Geneva Bible of 1560.
The event will be held on 13 August from 12pm to 4pm at St Paul’s Cathedral.
