The Institute for Classical and Medieval Studies (ICMS) continues its spring 2019 Brown Bag Seminar Series on Thursday, February 21 from 11:45 a.m. – 12:45 p.m. in Student Center room 207 with a presentation by Matthew Mitchell, PhD, associate professor of religious studies and theology.
Mitchell will discuss lost Jewish writings about Jesus and look at how over a span of centuries Christian writers spoke of encountering gospels written in Hebrew that were used by groups that thought of themselves as ‘both Jews and Christians’. Their confusing and often contradictory statements about the Jewish gospel tradition continue to fascinate modern scholars, many of whom still hope to find traces of the lost Hebrew gospel and the Jewish traditions from which it emerged.
Be sure to bring a lunch and engage in this interesting and informal conversation. For more information, visit the ICMS website.
