Church and State after the War in Armenia

A Sion College lunchtime seminar with Harut Harutyunyan - on Zoom

Since the Sion College visit to Armenia in 2019, when the group met Harut, the College has sought to maintain links with the country.

Please note the timing of this event – at lunchtime.

Harut will address the College with the aid of a slide presentation.

Biblical Translation: A Sion College Zoom seminar with John Barton

How can churches choose the best translation for use in public worship. In this seminar John Barton will examine three binaries in the discussion: functional versus formal equivalence, traditional versus modern forms of expression, and inclusive versus non-inclusive language.

John Barton is the Oriel and Lang Emeritus Professor of the Interpretation of Holy Scripture and a Senior Research Fellow in the University of Oxford.  He is also an Anglican priest, having been ordained in 1973. His book, A History of the Bible: The Book and its Faiths, presents the history of the origins and development of the Bible, its collection and canonization, and its interpretation and reception, together with reflections on its place within Christianity and Judaism.

Please note that because of the short notice for this event, cancellations will not be possible once applications have been made. Applicants to this Sion College seminar are asked on the application form to confirm their postal address. Attendees will be sent a copy of John Barton’s recent book A History of the Bible (Penguin, RRP £12.99), as well as a wine package during the week before the event.

Barbara Pym - A Sion College Zoom seminar with Paula Byrne

Her friend Philip Larkin called her “the era’s own Jane Austen”. But who was Barbara Pym and why is this English writer – one of the great chroniclers of the human heart – not more widely known?

Written with the wit and shrewd observations to match its subject, Paula Byrne’s new biography The Adventures of Miss Barbara Pym (William Collins) is the first to make full and unexpurgated use of Pym’s archive and sheds dramatic new light on both Pym the woman and the writer.

Applicants to this Sion College seminar are asked on the application form to confirm their postal address. Attendees will be sent a copy of Paula’s book, (RRP £25), as well as a wine package during the week before the event.

The Spirit of Cricket - A Sion College Zoom seminar with Mike Brearley

Ex-England cricket captain Mike Brearley examines the 'Spirit of Cricket' and how the notion of a 'good spirit' can be applied more broadly than simply in cricket or sport.

Mike Brearley's brilliant The Spirit of Cricket, Reflections on Play and Life alternates between issues and examples within the game and broader issues such as the spirit and letter of the law.

Applicants to this Sion College seminar are asked on the application form to confirm their postal address. Attendees will be sent a copy of Mike Brearley’s book The Spirit of Cricket, (RRP £20), as well as a wine package during the week before the event.

Chosen: Christianity and Judaism - A Sion College Zoom seminar with Giles Fraser

In 2011, the Occupy movement set up camp around St Paul's Cathedral. Giles Fraser, who was Canon Chancellor of the Cathedral, gave them his support. It ended in disaster. In his new book, Chosen: Lost and Found Between Christianity and Judaism (Allen Lane), he tells the story of the personal crisis that followed, and its surprising consequences.
