About Us

CSCO is the Centre for the Study of Christian Origins at the University of Edinburgh (New College). We are a collection of scholars committed to the study of early Christianity and the world that it was born in. Our interests range from New Testament studies to Patristics, to the world of Late Antiquity, and many of our members have specializations within these fields. More than that, we are interested in encouraging and supporting study in these areas and put on a range of conferences and seminars to this end.
