Sean Adams on the progymnasmata


(Matthew Novenson) The speaker for this Friday’s Biblical Studies Research Seminar is British Academy Postdoctoral Fellow and CSCO committee member Dr. Sean Adams. His major, BA-funded research project is a study of Hellenistic Jewish educational practices, especially as they illuminate the literary competencies of early Jewish and Christian authors. His paper for Friday is entitled “Luke and Rhetorical Education: The Role of the Progymnasmata and a Response to Recent Proposals.” As ever, the seminar meets on Friday from 11:15 to 12:30 in the Martin Hall, New College. Visitors are very welcome.
