I just recently found out about this speaker being on campus:
MRST Lecture Series
David Michelson (Department of History, University of Alabama)
“Putting Action into Words: The Formation of Christian Orthodoxy in Late Antiquity Viewed from Syriac Sources”
THURSDAY, 25 March 2010 at 4:00 pm in Bate 1012
Michelson is a recent Princeton graduate (2007) and he did his Ph.D under Peter Brown. Brown’s book The Cult of the Saints: Its Rise and Function in Latin Christianity was a major catalyst for my senior thesis, so I’m really excited to listen to someone who studied with him.
