This was the fourth postgraduate conference associated with the Society for the Study of Theology (SST).

The theme for the conference was 'Images, Icons and Idols' and explored theological and visual anthropologies, considering a broad theology of the image.

Thirty-one papers were delivered by postgraduates from around the world, as well as two keynote talks, and participants had the opportunity to take part in specialist workshops at the Manchester Museum.

The conference was free to attend, and was funded by the Society, the Lincoln Theological institute, ArtsMethods Manchester, SCM Press and an anonymous donor.
