(Matthew Novenson) This summer, I will be giving a plenary lecture on the political context of the New Testament at the St. Andrews Graduate Conference for Biblical and Early Christian Studies, whose topic for 2013 is “Sacred Texts in Their Socio-Political Contexts” (7-11 July, coincident with the International SBL in St. Andrews). My distinguished counterparts are Nathan MacDonald on the Hebrew Bible, Loren Stuckenbruck on the pseudepigrapha and Qumran scrolls, and Candida Moss on early Christian texts. The organizers (Dan Batovici, Jamie Davies, and John Dunne) are accepting paper proposals until 1 March; follow the link above for particulars. CSCO readers may want to combine a trip to the CSCO Conference on Peter in Earliest Christianity (4-6 July) with a jaunt across the Firth of Forth for this interesting conference.
