Early Christian writing topic for David M. Kennedy Center lecture March 19

"Writing Christian: Some Observations on the Identification of Early Christian Letters in Egypt" will be the topic presented by Lincoln H. Blumell, a visiting assistant professor Tulane University, on Thursday, March 19, at 11 a.m. in 238 Herald R. Clark Building.

Blumell’s research interest is ancient Christianity, and he will defend his dissertation, “Lettered Christians: Christians, Letters, and Late Antique Oxyrhynchus,” at the University of Toronto in June.

He has had a number of refereed publications, including “Reconsidering the Dates of Three Christian Letters” in Archiv für Papyrusforschung und verwandte Gebiete (2008), “Petition to a Beneficiarius from Late Third Century A.D. Oxyrhynchus” in Zeitschrift für Papyrologie und Epigraphik (2008) and the forthcoming “A Note on the Meaning of the Term MONOKTISTHS” Zeitschrift für Papyrologie und Epigraphik."

This lecture will be archived online. For more information on events sponsored by the David M. Kennedy Center for International Studies, see the calendar online at kennedy.byu.edu.
