A week-long celebration of Theology through the Arts starts in Cambridge on Sunday 10 September. The Sounding the Depths festival is the culmination of the first phase of Theology Through the Arts - a University of Cambridge project that aims to show how the arts of our time can help to explore the Christian faith. The festival highlights the work of the project over the last three years and includes music, theatre, opera and film performances; seminars and exhibitions. The opening event is being held in the University Concert Hall, West Road. As well as an exhibition of resources there will be a presentation with guest speakers including Senior Curator from the Tate, Judith Collins. The exhibition opens at 6.30pm with the presentation at 7.30pm and a reception at 8.30pm.
Since 1998, a multi-national archaeological project has been investigating the Iron Age hill-top settlement of Monte Polizzo, in Western Sicily. Part of the team is Dr Cornelius Holtorf of the University of Cambridge's Department of Archaeology. His interest is, however, not so much the ancient settlement itself, as the way in which the modern excavations on the site are being conducted.
Dr Roger Carpenter, University Lecturer in Cambridge's Department of Physiology, and Director of Studies in Medicine at Gonville & Caius College, was recently awarded a National Teaching Fellowship by the Institute for Learning and Teaching in Higher Education (ILT).
