The Pontifical Biblical Commission together with the Institute of Biblical Studies at The John Paul II Catholic University of Lublin organize a conference “Biblical Anthropology - a Message for Contemporary Man”.

Due to pandemic restrictions, the conference will be held on the Internet, via the Zoom platform.

Taking as a point of departure the latest document of the Pontifical Biblical Commission What is man? A Journey through Biblical Anthropology we want to reflect on the topics related to biblical anthropology and their importance for modern man. During the conference, the document of the Pontifical Biblical Commission will be discussed, considering its origins, character, purpose and reception in the Church. The conference will also focus on important topics of biblical anthropology such as: the meaning of God’s image in man, the biblical vision of family, love and sexuality, the bodily and spiritual dimension of human nature, humanity’s relationship to the created world, freedom and determinism, and the Christological model of human nature. We will be looking for answers to the question of how to communicate the message of biblical anthropology to contemporary people, entering into an interdisciplinary dialogue with modern science without losing the specificity of the biblical message. A special session will be devoted to the anthropology of St. Paul. Conference papers will be published in a special volume of The Biblical Annals.
