Peter Oakes attends Society of New Testament Studies
Peter Oakes has just returned from the annual meeting of the Society of New Testament Studies (SNTS), held this year in Marburg, Germany.
The Oberhessische Presse - on the 1 August 2019 - dedicated a half-page spread to the opening because the last meeting there, in 1954 (chaired by Rudolf Bultmann) marked a key step of reintegration of post-war German biblical scholarship into international discourse.
Peter chaired one of the papers, while another paper was presented by Fred Tappenden. Fred gained his PhD here in 2012, under the supervision of Todd Klutz and Peter. Fred is now Principal and Professor of Theology at St. Stephen’s College at the University of Alberta, Canada.
