Biblical Hebrew Reading Group

The reading group is an opportunity to read a biblical text under the guidance of great international scholars. We focus on reading, translation, grammar and the content of the texts. We read in a friendly and informal atmosphere. Participants range from absolute beginners to senior scholars.

Convenor: Dr. Cian Power (Oriel)

In Trinity Term 2023, the Biblical Hebrew Reading Group will run on Mondays 11:30 am – 12:30 pm.

Consult at the Oriel College porter’s lodge for the 4-digit passcode to enter the Harris Seminar Room.
