Oxford Psalms Network

‘The Oxford Psalms Network’ brings into conversation scholars working on the Psalms in related fields such as Theology, Reception History, History of Interpretation, History, Art History, Music and ancient and modern languages such as Hebrew, Greek, Latin, English, Old Irish, French, Italian, Portuguese and Spanish.

This Network examines the wider impact of the Psalms in the development of Judaeo-Christian culture, language and identity from the earliest times to the present day, encouraging interaction between academics, curators, and the wider public through a series of activities and outputs by academic and other partners. At the same time, it points to ways that scholars working on the history of Psalms in Judaeo-Christian culture might fruitfully collaborate with scholars working on the impact of the Psalms on other world religions.

A series of public talks on the Psalms by artists, academics, musicians, poets and illustrators is hosted by the Network. ‘New Perspectives on the Psalms’ began in January 2017 and is ongoing.

All are welcome.
