The journal Literature and Theology has its origins in the series of biennial conferences that survive to the present and began in the University of Durham in 1982. Their cultural and intellectual roots lay in the 19th century and in particular in the thought of S.T. Coleridge and J.H. Newman, and behind them the humanist tradition of Pascal and Erasmus. This essay reviews the contribution of five scholars to those conferences—John Coulson, Ulrich Simon, Martin Jarrett-Kerr, Peter Walker and F.W. Dillistone—and their influence on the early years of the journal.
