CenSAMM is a new initiative of the Panacea Charitable Trust in Bedford, UK created by Panacea trustees, Justin Meggitt, Naomi Hilton and Christopher Rowland
Justin Meggitt is a University Senior Lecturer in the Critical Study of Religion, University of Cambridge and Visiting Researcher at the Department of Ethnology, History of Religions and Gender studies, Stockholm University.
Naomi Hilton has a PhD from the University of Cambridge and has taught at the University of Cambridge and Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand. She is a former Research Associate at Victoria University of Wellington and is a researcher in early apocalyptic texts and movements.
Christopher Rowland retired in 2014 as Dean Ireland’s Professor of the Exegesis of Holy Scripture at the University of Oxford, after teaching at the Universities of Newcastle upon Tyne and Cambridge.
CenSAMM is creating resources for the critical study of apocalypticism and millenarianism and its conferences are held in the tranquil Panacea Museum Gardens in Bedford, England. The gardens were once believed by members of the now extinct millenarian and apocalyptic movement, the Panacea Society, to be the original Garden of Eden at the centre of the world.
