Who is Normal? : disability and the image of God

The 2017 St John’s Theology Symposium 2017 will look at the Christian understanding of the human person as created in the image of God and will be led by Professor John Swinton of Aberdeen University and Dr Medi Ann Volpe of Durham University. Both are theologians well known for their work on how people with disabilities or mental illness can teach us what it means to be human.

The Symposium will consist of lectures and discussion around a good lunch with drinks. It is an initiative of St John’s Episcopal Church and Edinburgh University School of Divinity (New College), in collaboration with City Centre Churches Together and the Centre for Theology and Public Issues.

The Symposium is free but donations can be given towards the cost of lunch and drinks. To register contact Stephen Holmes:
