Conference: Crosscurrents in Music and Theology

Humanities Research Institute, Friday December 6, 2013

The disciplines of Music and Theology and closely linked. 'Music is an outstanding gift of God and next to theology.' So said the German theologian and Reformer Martin Luther in 1538. Musicians as diverse as JS Bach, Olivier Messiaen, and John Coltrane have invoked Theology in their work.

This one day-conference, co-hosted by Sheffield University and the Royal Musical Association, seeks to build on the rich heritage of interdisciplinary existence by exploring the rich variety of crosscurrents that are currently evident between Music and Theology.

We are excited to welcome two keynote speakers, and are inviting submissions for papers on relevant topics.
