    Gladstone’s Library is delighted to announce the details of a three-day course for theologians, historians, and anyone with an interest in religion. Entitled Through Palestinian Eyes...Contemporary Christianity in the Middle East, the course will explore Christianity in the Middle East from the 19th Century through to the present day.

Further sessions include ‘The Fall of Middle Eastern Christianity in the 20th Century’; ‘The Political Situation in Israel Palestine’ and; ‘Christians in Israeli Palestine: Migration and Resilience.’

    The final session of this course, and the Robinson-Spong lecture for 2019, will explore the Bible and contemporary Christianity from a Palestinian perspective.
