An Update: I graduated…finally.

Though I was pretty sure it would never happen, it did: I graduated from East Carolina University yesterday with a BA in Classics

and┬áReligious Studies. I was given the ‘Outstanding Senior’ award for Classics, which meant that I got to give a little speech at graduation. I’m spending the summer in North Carolina, reading some Greek and Latin (any suggestions for things to read are welcome) then heading up to┬áSouth Bend to start my M.A. at Notre Dame in the Fall. It looks like in the Fall I’ll be taking Introduction to Early Christianity with Blake Leyerle, a doctoral seminar on ‘The Mystical Reading of Scriptures in Early Christianity’ with Robin Darling Young, and Intro to Christian Latin Texts with Michael Heintz. Pretty exciting! I will probably be TAing for some class next year once the department figures out their needs.

Jason Staples on BAR’s assessment of Smith’s handwriting

Jason Staples has written a blog post on BAR’s recent analysis of the handwriting in the Mar Saba document. If you’re not familiar with Jason’s blog, you should read it! Jason is a Ph.D student under Bart Ehrman at the University of North Carolina. I’ve spoken with Jason a few times and, without claiming psychic powers, I can assure you that his future books/articles will be on the ‘must read’ lists for many.
