(Helen Bond) Thanks to all the CSCO team for a hugely successful conference on Peter in Earliest Christianity. We had over 70 registrations in the end and 22 great papers. Our main speakers were all excellent – Peter Lampe, Markus Bockmuehl, Tobias Niklas, Timothy Barnes, Margaret Williams, and Larry Hurtado. We also appreciated their input throughout the conference (despite the enticing Edinburgh sunshine). Most of us headed off to ISBL in St Andrews afterwards (where poor Markus Bockmuehl had to endure another panel discussion of his Peter book!).
Everyone is asking what the next conference will be on – there will be another, but not for a couple of years! Meanwhile, we are editing the papers and hope to have a volume out in a year to eighteen months. No doubt we’ll be blogging about it here . . .
