This November the annual meeting of the Evangelical Theological Society will be held in Denver, Colorado. I am excited to announce once again the details of the Septuagint Studies consultation for this year’s event. Despite my own presence within it, I must say that we have another great panel of presenters lined up. (more…)
Every two years Septuagint scholars around the world rub their hands in anticipation of one of the best conferences in the discipline. Aside from the lovely location on the heiligen Berg just outside the city, this event provides an ideal size and pace for genuinely useful research presentations and scholarly interaction. That is why people come.
The conference is part of the Forschungsprojekte zur Septuaginta in Deutschland, a research initiative that is responsible for the production of Septuaginta Deutsch (also here) and the ongoing Handbuch zur Septuagint. Another important aspect of this project is the biannual conferences, which also lead to an edited volume. Although the 2016 conference volume is not quite available yet, I am told it will be this year. (more…)
It’s been pretty quiet on this blog for almost two months now. Part of the reason for that is the fact that I am now entering what is hopefully my last six months of dissertation writing. Things are getting serious so it’s taking more of my time and focus.
I’ll also say that I have not one, but two pretty big announcements to make, one Septuagint-related and one personal. I can’t really say anything more at this point. But suffice it to say that these two items have demanded a lot of my time and attention over the last two months as well. More coming soon. (more…)
