The ESV - Lost and Found in Translation - Session 1

The commissioning of a new translation of Sacred Scripture will always raise key questions about how much any translation can meet the requirement to be faithful to original texts and, at the same time, aware of cultural needs. ACTA has arranged a series of talks from Scripture scholars to explore some of these issues.

All talks will be delivered via Zoom. All times are current London times.

The first session will be on Thursday 23rd September from 7.00pm- 8.30pm 

Session 1 will involve: 

  • Sr Patricia Rumsey – Abbess, Author and contributor to the Centre for Applied Theology        
  •  Dr Amanda Dillon - Assistant Professor, Dept of Theology, Dublin City University
