The annual Institute on Sacred Scripture will convene for the fiftieth consecutive year on the Georgetown University campus from June 11-13, 2013. As has been for fifty years, topics from both the Old and New Testaments will be the subject of presentations by a distinguished faculty of biblical scholars. Lectures and discussions will enable the participants to increase their understanding of the Bible and its continued relevance to modern life.
Institute sessions will meet from 9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Tuesday and Wednesday and from 9:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on Thursday. Four major presentations are scheduled each day, with opportunity for questions and discussion following each lecture. In addition, a panel discussion with all faculty participating will close the afternoon sessions on Tuesday and Wednesday. Additionally, on Wednesday, June 12, there will be a special evening lecture: Father John W. O’Malley, S. J. “Trent and Vatican II on Scripture.”
