Lunchtime Lecture: The Incredible Lady Bible Hunters: Sisters of Sinai

Wednesday, Jan 31, 2018 at 12:00PM - 1:00 PM

This event has now ended. Please view this page to see all our upcoming events.

In 1892 Scottish twin sisters, both widowed and neither with any formal academic qualifications, made their way by camel and foot across the Sinai desert to St. Catherine’s Monastery. There, Agnes made one of the most important Bible finds of the century, launching the two sisters on a career of eastern Bible hunting, sleeping in tents, placating skeptical monks and fabulous finds—including those that led to the treasure trove of Jewish manuscripts that is the Cairo Genizah. 

Join us for this lunchtime public lecture, in which Dr. Janet Soskice, Professor of Philosophical Theology at Cambridge University, tells the story of these sisters and their incredible find. All are welcome to bring their lunch and engage in a brief Q & A period afterward.

Janet Soskice is a Regent graduate and Professor of Philosophical Theology in the Faculty of Theology and Religious Studies at the University of Cambridge. This true story is based on her book Sisters of Sinai: How Two Lady Adventurers Found the Hidden Gospels (Vintage 2009), which, on publication, was read as Book of the Week on BBC Radio 4. The book was also placed in the "Best Books of the Year" lists of the Washington Post and the Christian Science Monitor.
