« You Couldn't Make It Up: Letters and Papers from Prison and Yesterday's Post | Main | New Mohr-Siebeck Journal: Early Christianity »

I am also interested in the study of very early christianity. I am currently reading, Walter Bauer's _Orthodoxy and Heresy in Earliest Christianity_. I have studied the topic for almost 20 years now. I have read a number of other of the great works on this topic like Strauss, Harnack, Schweitzer, two additional Bauers (FC & Bruno), and many many others, but this is my current read.

I am always interested in meeting others that are interested in the study of earliest christianity to have ongoing conversations and share reading lists, etc... you can contact me by email at RichGriese@gmail.com

Do you have specific aspect of the study that interest you, that you might be interested in discussing, and perhaps having on going discussions on the topic in general? Feel free to email me to talk about it.

My main interest is the very earliest period. Perhaps from the modified Messiah idea that may have begun around the time of the Maccabean revolt through the beginnings of christianity itself, till the Council of Nicea in 325CE, and perhaps a few years after that as some of the results of that council took effect.

On my main site I don't post my christian history posts, since most people have no interest in christian history, so I try to make my main site more of a general purpose one. But I do post on christian history topics, and collect resources and links that others interested in the subject may find useful. I am happy to share these with folks that are interested in that kind of thing.



congratulations! I'm visiting NZ in 2011, so will look out to see what you are publishing then.

Thanks one and all
@ Tim - you are entirely right, and I have added the extra syllables to make the broader scope of the journal clear.
@ Paul - given that Katherine works for the most comprehensive aggregator of Australian electronic research ... well let's wait and see.

Ah, yes, the Byrne clan are a hard act to follow, Sean...but I'm sure you'll do it with aplomb! Conratulations!

Congratulations :)

Just a small note though, the journal's title and strapline both claim to represent MORE than just Australian work. It would be a shame if a Pom was the one to make Pacifica even less representative of the whole (South?) Pacific region ;)

Congrats! Will Katherine be selling you...?

Congratulations, Sean!

Wonderful news. Congratulations!
