2012 - Liturgy and Scripture

The theme of the 2012 conference was Liturgy and Scripture. The theme was chosen as it had been twenty years since Societas Liturgica took the subject of scripture and liturgy as a theme for its congress and the Committee believed that it would be a good time to review again the issues faced in the interrelation of scripture and the liturgy.
