Temple Studies Group

A Temple Studies Group has been established, in the first instance to convene one-day symposia on Temple themes. The first symposium was held at St Stephen’s House, Oxford, on November 8th 2008, on the theme ‘Melchizedek in Scripture, Tradition and Liturgy’, with presentations by Robert Hayward, Laurence Hemming, Crispin Fletcher-Louis and Margaret Barker.

Topics in the immediate future are likely to be ‘Temple and Music’ and ‘The Temple and the Holy Sepulchre’. Some symposia will be in the Temple Church in London. Further information is available from the Convener, Dr Margaret Barker (bkmargaret@hotmail.com).
