Who are we?

The members of the Irish Biblical Association are engaged professionally with and/or take a personal interest in the Jewish and Christian Scriptures. The Association arranges at least three meetings a year, two in Dublin and one in Belfast. The IBA also has an Annual Conference which includes talks by international scholars and our Annual General Meeting. The IBA is a non-denominational society.

The IBA publishes an annual periodical (The Proceedings of the Irish Biblical Association or PIBA). The Publications Committee of the Association is actively engaged in the publication of early Irish commentaries and apocrypha.  

We are about to conduct a survey of the membership
