Closer to home - Biblical Reception in Oxford

Centre for Reception History of the Bible

The Centre for Reception History of the Bible (CRHB) is a research centre based at the University of Oxford. It aims to foster exchange between scholars working on the biblical text across the Humanities, creating a research network which focuses on exploring the use and influence of the Bible.

The Centre organises a regular seminar series (‘The Bible in Art, Music and Literature’) during University term time, runs conferences, and promotes publications that examine the reception history of the Bible.
