Earlier today Joel noted that the very school which fired Le Donne was planning a conference on, of all things, the Historical Jesus! Irony of ironies, the very school which didn’t see fit to retain on its faculty a very fine Historical Jesus scholar was hosting a conference on the subject… how bizarre.
At any rate, Joel said the event should be boycotted- but something even better than that has happened:
As Anthony Le Donne’s colleague, co-editor, and co-organizer for the conference, let me say that I’m as destroyed as anyone at the unexpected dismissal of him. One of the first things we decided, however, was that the conference would no longer be on LCU’s campus. We are currently seeking an alternative host site.
I’m sure they will have more than ample choices. Good for the conference organizers and participants. Yes, I applaud them.
