Rutherford Redivivus

A Conference Engaging with Samuel Rutherford’s Theology and Historical Context

Friday 25th May 2018
University of St Andrews, St Andrews, Fife

Samuel Rutherford (c.1600-1661) was one of the foremost and most prolific writers and theologians that Scotland has produced. Despite this, academic engagement with his work has been limited until recent years. Currently, however, there are a number of scholars working on historical theological aspects of Rutherford’s thought or his historical context. This conference seeks to bring bring together a range of established, early career scholars and doctoral students.

Plenary Speaker:
Prof John Coffey (University of Leicester)

This one-day conference is organised by St Mary’s College, University of St Andrews where Rutherford was Principaland taught theology in the 1640s and 50s.  It seeks to engage with Rutherford and his context through a range of papers and workshops.
