The Biblicalist: A New Email List for Biblical Studies

4th March 2008

hannah.jpgThe moderators would like to announce the release of a new biblical studies email list, The Biblicalist
(http://groups.yahoo.com/group/biblicalist/)

The Biblicalist is a biblical studies list of academic emphasis open to all who wish to approach the Bible in its wider context, past and present. All viewpoints and perspectives which draw on the work of scholars in biblical studies and cognate disciplines are welcome. Topics of discussion include the interpretation of particular texts of the Bible and related literature, the background of ancient Near Eastern and Classical cultures, theological and philosophical reflections on relevant issues, and the Bible in art and literature, including the reception of the Bible from ancient times to the present. Other topics in a similar vein are not only welcome, but encouraged.
