'Seminary Education and Ministerial Training: Shi’ite and Christian Perspectives'
14 June, 15:30 to 16 June, 17:30, The Business School, Mill Hill Road, DurhamOrganised by the DGI in partnership with the Department of Theology and Religion , the Islamic College of London, and the Durham Shi'ite Studies Programme.
The history, terminology and methodology of seminary education remain relatively unexplored by scholars from other religious and academic traditions. This conference aims to bridge this gap by offering a comparative platform through which principles relating to Shi'ite and Christian learning can be exchanged. As an historic seat of Christian learning and seminary studies, Durham represents a truly magnificent setting for this event.
Eight panels will be hosted over the course of this three-day conference focusing on:
- The History and Development of Seminary Schools
- The Structure, Syllabus and Format of Seminary Education.
- The Role of Legal Theory and Hermeneutics.
- Educational Approaches to Philosophy and Rationality.
- Ethics, Spirituality and Mysticism.
- Methodological Issues of Seminary Education.
- The Social Impact of Seminary Schools.
- Interactions between Shi'ite and Christian Seminary Education.
