The Faculty is delighted to announce that Professor Christopher Rowland has been awarded the Burkitt Medal for his services to Biblical Studies by the British Academy.

In presenting the medal, Professor David Parker commented, ‘We can’t imagine the landscape of New Testament studies as it is today without your contribution, which has shaped it in many ways, not only intellectually but also in the way you have made your contribution as writer, teacher, colleague.’

We warmly congratulate Professor Rowland, Emeritus Dean Ireland’s Professor of Exegesis here at the University of Oxford, where he taught from 1991 until his retirement in 2014.
