Prestigious Vice-Chancellor's Award for Our Student
16 March 2016
We are excited to announce that Srećko Koralija, who has recently completed our course Jews, Christians and Muslims in Europe: Modern Challenges, has been selected for the prestigious Vice-Chancellor's Award of the University of Cambridge to support his PhD research in Old Testament studies at the Faculty of Divinity, under the supervision of Dr James Aitken.
Srećko’s PhD research project is focused on the Septuagint (Greek) and Peshitta (Syriac) texts of the book of Genesis and will examine their linguistic and conceptual interrelationship. The purpose of the project is to investigate how the translators were concerned with the translation and transformation of biblical episodes and single biblical words with special reference to the cross-cultural and religious contexts of a particular text, period and religious group.
