ICCR 2014- The Group Photo

leave a comment »

From left to right, some of the folk you’ll know-

Elsie McKee, Herman Selderhuis, me, Joe Mock, and Peter Opitz.  Christian Moser isn’t in the photo.  It was such a lovely meeting.  The location of the photo, by the way, is Kappel-am-Albis where we visited the Zwingli memorial and had a very very nice dinner in the Cloister.

The photo was taken by Christian Moser and there are a lot more, all very high resolution and at 100% display will show folk and things quite clearly, right here.

Conference Announcement: Neglected Epistolary Texts and Early Christian Identities

with one comment

From Paul Middleton, BNTS-

Durham 16-17th April 2015

Neglected texts include (but are not limited to) James, Hebrews, 1-2 Peter, as well as the Epistle of Barnabas and 1 Clement. In an era where a Pauline- or Gospel-centered reading is often the starting point for ‘the’ normative/orthodox reading, this gathering hopes to privilege these ‘muted’ texts to explore Christian identities from another perspective. The conference will take a multi-faceted approach, investigating identities via a number of avenues: theological, anthropological, sociological, reception historical, and political readings. All those interested in the New Testament and Early Christianity are invited.

Further details and the Call for Papers can be found here: http://mutedvoicesconference.com/
