This week's Video recommendation is our Research Day series. We are planning ways to adapt Research Day 2020 to the current climate, but you can watch past presentations from our researchers and student on our website and YouTube channel.

Podcast:

Memories are a crucial part of what makes us human. Where do we find meaning if we’re deprived of the memories we have created of the people, the beliefs and the things we love? Speaking with Ed Kessler in this week's Podcast recommendation, John Swinton and Joanna Collicutt discuss the grim topic of dementia. You can listen and subscribe to weekly episodes of Naked Reflections here.

Blog:

In this week's Blog recommendation, PhD scholar Sam Victor reflects on his first year in the PhD programme at the University of Cambridge. Sam's research examines the ethics of relationships among Evangelical Christians who engage in informal interreligious dialogue and friendship building with their Muslim neighbours in Nashville, Tennessee. You can read his blog here. Interested in writing a blog of your own? Email blog@woolf.cam.ac.uk with your thoughts - we'd love to hear from you.

Research:

The Leverhulme Trust funded the Exegetical Encounter in Late Antiquity which explored the interaction between Jewish and Christian biblical commentators in the formative period of both religions. The research, 2005-2009, demonstrates to what extent Christian commentators were influenced by Jewish commentators and vice versa. You can read about this project here.
