(Matthew Novenson) This week’s Edinburgh Biblical Studies Research Seminar (Friday, 11:15am, Martin Hall, New College) features a paper from Prof. Joachim Schaper of the University of Aberdeen. Schaper’s expertise ranges from ancient Israelite history to Judaism in Hellenistic Egypt, and he is perhaps best known for his monographs Eschatology in the Greek Psalter (Mohr Siebeck, 1995) and Priester und Leviten im achämenidischen Juda (Mohr Siebeck, 2000). The title of his seminar paper is “Does monotheism breed violence? A look at the Israelite sources, in dialogue with Jan Assmann.” As always, visitors are very welcome.
