CAMBRIDGE DIGITAL BIBLE RESEARCH

Scholarship made useful

Cambridge Digital Bible Research is a charitable organisation to connect  scholars, translators and interpreters of the Bible through visualising analyses of the text. So much good work has been done, but it remains locked in scholarly jargon, in impenetrable prose, in English only, and behind pay walls. Translators and interpreters need this work in a form meaningful to them. If we can translate the scholarship into a form meaningful to them, translators will be able to translate the Bible into other languages, better and faster. Interpreters will be able to write study Bibles better and faster. Pastors will be able to write sermons better and faster.

ABOUT OUR ORGANISATION

Freeing scholarship from its box

Inspired by a life-long passion for Bible translation and a career in biblical scholarship, Elizabeth Robar founded Cambridge Digital Bible Research in 2020 in Cambridge, UK. The proper end of biblical scholarship is to bring people closer to God, but how can it do so when it remains inaccessible? By having one foot in Bible translation, another in academia, and another in digital humanities, our aim is to bridge the worlds, freeing biblical scholarship from its ivory tower and bringing it into a robust dialogue with the people whom it should serve and from it equally needs to learn: students and interpreters of the Bible.
