The Unistra seminar on the Book of the Prophet Amos begins today! This course is intended for second year Master students at the University of Strasbourg‘s Faculty of Protestant Theology. The first semester will be dedicated to Amos’ prophetic visions, with a comparative study of the masoretic (Hebrew) text and the (Greek) Septuagint version, together with a synthesis of major theological themes. I am delighted to teach this seminar with Regine Hunziker-Rodewald, Professor of Old Testament.
The fourth and last session of the conference on the redactions of the Hebrew Bible’s Prophetic Books will take place on January 24-25, 2009 at the University of Fribourg (Switzerland).
Topics will include Malachi and the Twelve, Apocalyptic and Prophecy, and the Formation of the Corpus of Former and Latter Prophets. With the participation of Innocent Himbaza, Pierluigi Piovanelli, Philippe Lefebvre, and Konrad Schmid.
