The Department of Sociology at the University of Aberdeen has organised a public lecture series to mark the 400th anniversary of the publication of the King James Bible. There are six lectures, all given by specialists in the field, examining the theological, political and sociological context of the KJV, its place in Scottish history and its contributions to English literature. Lectures begin 1 March 2011 and are held in the King’s College Conference Centre.
