“Sacrament and Liturgy in Digital Spaces”
CODEC Research Centre for Digital Theology
Durham University, UK
April 19-20 2018
In a rapidly developing technological age, the question of church online is both highly relevant and highly contentious. Christianity is deeply rooted in the Incarnation and in the tangible, visceral symbols and sacraments of belonging. Join the CODEC Research Centre for Digital Theology and special guests for a symposium exploring the questions of sacrament and liturgy in digital spaces.
The event begins at 5pm on Thursday April 19th with an evening meal and a lecture by Dr Jana Bennett (University of Ohio, author of “Aquinas on the Web?” (Bloomsbury 2012)). We continue from 10am to 4pm on Friday April 20th, with a day of talks, conversations and panel discussions exploring new ideas in digital theology. Invited speakers include Professor Paul Fiddes (University of Oxford) and Rev. Pam Smith (priest-in-charge of i-church and author of “Online Mission and Ministry” (SPCK 2015)).
