The Department of Religious Studies is hosting a talk, "The Corinthian Correspondence and the Birth of Christian Hermeneutics," by Margaret Mitchell, professor of New Testament and Christian Literature at the University of Chicago. The lecture is part of the Central Texas Colloquium on Religion.
Her research and teaching span a range of topics in New Testament and early Christian writings, with particular focus on their relationship to the wider Greco-Roman world and literary culture in which they were composed, as well as in the legacies of those texts as sacred scripture for Christian communities in later antiquity and beyond.
A short reception will follow the lecture. Free parking is available at the seminary.
