Visual Theology produces zines for its events and occasional partners. As a registered visual journal (ISSN 2634 9004) they represent a unique material foothold for our discussions about the spiritual imagination in visual culture.
We treat these full-colour A4 programmes to high production values because we like what they say about the visualness of visual theology: as well as being a memento of an event, they include illuminating artist and research spotlights, with image and text in striking combination.
We are excited to announce the imminent publication of Issue 3, in association with Tyndale House.
Issue 3 has been produced for the occasion of the Tyndale Fellowship Old Testament Study Group conference (28th-30th June 2021), a special symposium held this year in honour of Professor J. Gordon McConville’s 70th birthday. With the theme ‘Hope for the World in the Old Testament’, the zine is packed with a vibrant and captivating selection of visual artworks, from Brueghel & Ruben’s The Garden of Eden and The Fall of Man (1615) to Colin McCahon’s Gate III (1970). The zine aims to celebrate interpretation of the Bible in art, presenting a mini-exhibition of 12 Old Testament subjects through painting, photography, etching, and stained glass. Also included is a welcome from the conference organisers, Brittany N. Melton (Chair of the OT Study Group) and Jamie Grant (Festschrift editor); contributions from J. Gordon McConville, Andrew T. Lincoln, Sheona Beaumont, and Madeleine Emerald Thiele; and presenter information.
Delegates and presenters who are attending the event online are invited to request a free copy of the zine, by filling in the request form below.
