The University of Aberdeen is hosting some large conferences this year on theological ethics, which is something that Aberdeen does especially well (alongside systematics, I hasten to add).

The first conference is on the significance of the Protestant Reformation for ethics: “The Freedom of a Christian Ethicist: The Future of a Reformation Legacy.” Click the title for the flyer with the list of presenters. The dates are October 24-25, 2014.

The second is a series of events related to “The Challenge of Bonhoeffer’s Theology.” There is a two-part conference, “Doctrine and Ethics: The Challenge of Bonhoeffer’s Theology,” held December 12-13, 2014, and January 29-30, 2015. Also, Jennifer McBride will be giving a public lecture at the end of this month, March 28, and Christopher Holmes will do the same on January 27, 2015.

  1. I just read a blog post on the relevance of Bonhoeffers ethics for the Ukraine/Russia situation. Sad are the realities of life.

      Yes. Unfortunately I find it difficult to even decipher the news reports/commentary, other than the media’s obvious glee at revisiting Cold War geo-politics.

      • Indeed. Though while I don’t think it’s appropriate to use a real violent and terrible situation that’s currently going on as some kind of a case study, one does wonder what the limit and scope of Christian ethics in a situation like that in the Ukraine.
