Public Lectures

Our mandate is to educate the whole people of God—and that includes the Christian community of Vancouver and beyond. We offer free public lectures by our own world-class faculty, and by visiting scholars, teachers, and authors from around the world.

We host two regular lecture series—Summer Lectures and the Laing Lectures—as well as special events throughout the year.

Most of our lectures are recorded and available as audio downloads through RegentAudio.com

Summer Lectures

In the Spring and Summer Sessions, we host lectures every week to highlight the research of our regular faculty and our visiting summer lecturers. All lectures are in the Regent College Chapel unless otherwise noted. Our lectures tend to draw large crowds, so plan to arrive early for a good seat.

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

Janet-soskice-460x460

With Janet Soskice

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 where Agnes made one of the most important Bible finds of the century, launching them on a career of eastern Bible hunting, sleeping in tents, placating skeptical monks and fabulous finds… Including those that lead 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 and was in the ‘Best Books of the Year’ lists of the Washington Post and the Christian Science Monitor.
