Based in the Faculty of Theology and Religion at Oxford University, the Centre for Reception History of the Bible is an interdisciplinary research centre.  It aims to foster exchange between scholars working on biblical texts across the Humanities, creating a research network which focuses on exploring the use and influence of the Bible.

The Centre organises a regular seminar series (‘The Bible in Art, Music and Literature’) during University term time, runs conferences, and produces and promotes publications that examine the reception history of the Bible.
