Aberdeen conferences in Theological Ethics

March 3, 2014


Chapel and Divinity Quad

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.
