The Faculty of Divinity is holding a free study day on 12 November for students in Years 11, 12 and 13 who are interested in finding out more about how religion is studied at university. The day will begin with talk about how Theology and Religion is taught at Cambridge. This will be followed by a lecture from Dr James Aitken, looking at how manuscripts in Hebrew and in Greek can shed light on the lives and personalities of the people who wrote them (no language knowledge required!). In the afternoon (please bring a packed lunch) students will visit the University Library to see some manuscripts and hear more from Dr Ben Outhwaite and Dr Suzanne Paul about the potential of religious manuscripts to give us an insight into the communities that owned and produced them. The day will conclude back at the Faculty with a hands-on activity that aims to develop skills in using primary sources. Students do not need to be studying religion to attend the event.
