CLSG: exploring Christian and Biblical themes in literature

The Christian Literary Studies Group aims to explore some of the implications of the Christian faith in the study and teaching of literature. Members have a wide range of interests, from Anglo-Saxon texts to literary theory. The topics are not confined to British or even Anglophone literature, and extend to literary approaches to Biblical studies. Some CLSG members are academics and teachers, some professional or freelance writers, some are students and others ‘just interested’. Our project is to approach a Christian understanding of literature and of issues in current literary studies, and to encourage members in their own writings and readings.

The annual seminar style conference held each year at Oxford usually has a single theme. Details appear here.

The CLSG’s  journal, The Glass, is produced annually. Details of our publications are in the ‘Journal’ and ‘Publications’ sections of this site. Offers from members to contribute to the journal or to the conference are welcome.
