Chapter published on Glory in Bach’s St John Passion

On 7 December, a new edited collection was launched by Bishop Alison Taylor, The Enduring Impact of the Gospel of John, edited by Robert Derrenbacker, Dorothy Lee and Muriel Porter, published by Wipf and Stock, including a co-authored chapter with Andreas Loewe on the influence of Johannine concepts of ‘glory’ in Bach’s St John Passion. In both the source and the later work, ‘glory’ is a paradox of ‘high’ and ‘low’–explored through words, concepts and music.

Other chapters include explorations of first-century viticulture, Dostoyevsky’s Crime and Punishment and Pasifika responses to climate change.
