I am exceedingly pleased to announce that, following our colloquia with Jodi Magness and Avraham Faust, Eric Meyers of Duke University will be our guest on the biblical studies list to discuss his new volume, ‘Alexander to Constantine‘.
Drawing on the most recent, groundbreaking archaeological research, Eric M. Meyers and Mark A. Chancey re-narrate the history of ancient Palestine in this richly illustrated and expertly integrated book. Spanning from the conquest of Alexander the Great in the fourth century BCE until the reign of the Roman emperor Constantine in the fourth century CE, they synthesize archaeological evidence with ancient literary sources (including the Bible) to offer a sustained overview of the tumultuous intellectual and religious changes that impacted world history during the Greco-Roman period.
Professor Meyers will be joining us January 13-20, 2013. This will surely give those interested in taking part opportunity to get a copy of the book and fully digest it.
We’re very, very grateful to Eric, and Jodi, and Avi, for coming along with us in our journey of intellectual exploration together. If you’d like to take part in any of the discussions coming up, just join the discussion group.
