King's College London, of the University of London, are hosting a tremendous event in two weeks, entitled Jesus & Brian or: What Have The Pythons Done For Us? This conference will take a look at the topic of the Historical Jesus, through the lens of the Monty Python film 'The Life of Brian'.
There will be talks from international luminaries in the field(s), including: Bart Ehrman, Paula Fredriksen, Amy-Jill Levine, Martin Goodman, George Brooke, Steve Mason, Adele Reinhartz, Helen Bond, James Crossley, Philip Davies, Richard Burridge and Guy Stiebel. The director of the film Terry Jones (and other mystery guest) will discuss the film and its reception on Friday night, 20 June. The remarkable John Cleese will give an after-dinner talk at the Conference Dinner at Great Hall of Inner Temple on Saturday 21 June hosted by the Master of Temple Church Robin Griffith-Jones. This will be a sparkling wine reception, followed by a multi-course meal, with wine, and will undoubtedly be a very memorable evening (Dinner not included in standard ticket price). On Sunday 22 June there will also be discussion with the film's editor Julian Doyle.
This is the conference for anyone interested in a new way of looking at the subject of Jesus, the Romans, and Judaea in the first century. Bloomsbury T&T Clark are proud to announce that we are the official publishers of the event, and we will be publishing a collection of the articles delivered at the conference in 2015, edited by the conference organiser Joan Taylor.
