Thomas F. Torrance Theological Fellowship
Theme: Incarnation, Creation and New Creation: What T. F. Torrance Offers to a Theological Re-visioning of the Arts
Friday - 1:00 PM-4:00 PM
Convention Center-Mile High 1A (Lower Level)

Torrance’s immense contribution to the theology-science interaction could lead us to assume his work is of little relevance to the arts. Certainly, references to the arts are few and far between in his writings. However, Begbie will argue that his Christological and trinitarian integration of creation and new creation is of immense significance for the current dialogue between theology and the arts, opening up a much-needed way between an undisciplined aestheticism on the one hand, and a knee-jerk iconoclasm on the other.

Jeremy Begbie is Thomas A. Langford Research Professor in Theology at Duke Divinity School. He is also a Senior Member at Wolfson College, Cambridge, and an Affiliated Lecturer in the Faculty of Music at the University of Cambridge. His books include Redeeming Transcendence in the Arts: Bearing Witness to the Triune God (Eerdmans), Theology, Music and Time (CUP), Resounding Truth: Christian Wisdom in the World of Music (Baker), and Music, Modernity, and God (OUP).
