Why care for Creation?
biblical & theological perspectives on the environment

Dr Hilary Marlow

Hilary’s PhD from the University of Cambridge (2007) examined the Old Testament prophets in the light of contemporary environmental ethics. Before joining the Faraday Institute in January 2013, she was a Research Associate for the Scriptural Reasoning online project at Cambridge Inter-faith Programme. Prior to this she taught Old Testament and Biblical Hebrew in the Faculty of Divinity and was Research Associate in Theology and Science at the Faraday Institute. Since 2010 she has been a member of the Steering Group for the Society of Biblical Literature’s Ecological Hermeneutics Programme Unit and on the editorial board of the Earth Bible Commentary Series

Hilary’s research focuses on reading religious Scriptures in the context of modern society. She is interested in the Bible’s depiction of the interaction between people and the natural world and relevance of this in contemporary debates on religion and science. This includes textual studies on the portrayal of nature, study of creation texts and their interpretation in later Jewish and Christian traditions, and theological and exegetical study on what it means to be human in the light of current scientific developments.
