A maximum of two entries per school or college is invited. There is a “pot” of £500, with a First Prize of £300. Essays, which should be between 1,500 and 2,500 words long (including footnotes), can be submitted in answer to one of the following questions:

1 What questions might the presence of life elsewhere in the universe pose to theology? Answer with respect to a world religious tradition of your choice.

2 What does the commemoration of the anniversary of the Protestant Reformation mean for the twenty-first century?

3 How should knowledge of the Jewish and Hellenistic world of the first century inform our understanding of the New Testament?

4 What does the study of religion miss if it neglects to consider material culture, such as visual art, architecture or archaeological remains?
