Imagining a new vision of biblical formation in the Catholic Church


Ela Lazarewicz-Wyrzykowska
, lecturer in Old Testament at the Margaret Beaufort Institute of Theology, Cambridge, reports on a symposium on biblical formation in the Catholic Church.

In September 2019 the Margaret Beaufort Institute of Theology (MBIT) hosted a symposium entitled ‘A new vision of biblical formation in the Catholic Church’. Participants came from the UK, Ireland, Poland and Sri Lanka. The event provided a framework for a unique conversation between scholars from different fields relating to academic biblical studies, biblical education and Catholic formation.1 The symposium was organised independently from the Year of the Word, but the serendipity of these two initiatives goes without saying. The Year of the Word: The God Who Speaks provides an opportunity to develop our practice of engaging with the Bible and our thinking about how such engagement may be shaped in different contexts.
