It is widely recognised as the most authoritative and prestigious forum for serious scholarly publication in the area. The general meeting is an opportunity to showcase the latest publications in the series to the society’s members.Cambridge also publishes New Testament Studies, an an international peer-reviewed periodical, which is arranged by SNTS. The journal publishes original articles and short studies in English, French and German which represent research at the cutting edge of the discipline about the origins, history, context and theology of the New Testament and early Christianity. The general meeting offers a rare opportunity to meet with the entire editorial board and review the journal’s performance over the previous 12 months, as well as to discuss future editions and address any administrative issues.

Byzantine Studies Spring Symposium 2012 - 24th-26th March - Oxford, UK
The eleventh century is in many respects a crucial period in the history of Byzantium. It is a period of fundamental changes and transformations (internally and externally) and a period rife with clichés and dominated by the towering presence of Michael Psellos whose (usually self-contradictory) accounts continue to loom large in the field of Byzantine studies. It is above all a period we need to know more about – and the aim of this Spring Symposium, therefore, would be to question our assumptions and explore new avenues of research.
Cambridge University Press and Michael Sharp, Editor is delighted to once again be supporting the event. Bringing some 100 titles to the event and his expertise, Michael will be attending Cambridge’s stand once again this year and is hoping to meet many of the delegates.
There will be seven plenary sessions: The world of Psellos; The here and hereafter (two sessions); Byzantium from within; Byzantium and beyond (two sessions); Other voices. Twenty three distinguished scholars have agreed to give papers on a wide range of subjects related to Archaeology, History (Social, Economic, Political), Literature and Art History. There will also be thirty short communications on related topics.
