TRN Video

The SCD Theology Research Network (TRN),  a network within the discipline area of Theology, was initiated in 2020 to promote theological research within the Sydney College of Divinity. It draws together scholars from the diverse theological disciplines (systematics/doctrine, patristic, biblical theology, ethics, liturgy), and provides a forum and focus for theological research.

TRN commenced with the 2020-2021 seminar series on Theologising in the Shadow of a Pandemic. Below are the first draft of the papers presented in the series. The seminars will culminate in the first TRN conference to be held on 18 – 19 February, 2022.
