The Cadbury Lectures

Aston Webb, University of Birmingham

The Edward Cadbury Lectures come from an endowment from the Cadbury Family to the University of Birmingham for an annual series of lectures open to the public on the history, theology and culture of Christianity.

The first Cadbury Lectures were delivered in 1948 by the historian Arnold Toynbee, followed by a succession of eminent scholars from around the world.


The theme for 2014 is Is the New Testament Anti-Jewish? and will consist of a series of lectures given by Professor Amy-Jill Levine, Vanderbilt University USA.
