(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.
