Group Description

The XTalk Seminar on Jesus in Oral Memory is a moderated, online, two week long forum whose aim is to provide a platform for exchanges between approved Seminar members and J.D.G. Dunn, author of Jesus and the Spirit, Christology in the Making, and many other works, on the issues and arguments contained in his paper "Jesus in Oral Memory" (to be found at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/crosstalk2/files/Articles%20for%20Review/JesusInOralMemory.htm). The Seminar, to be carried out under the auspices of the XTalk Discussion List and its managers, will begin on Monday, April 23rd, and run until
Friday, May 4th, 2001. So as to be managed effectively, the Seminar will be conducted on a subscription only basis and will be subject to selection by the seminar's moderators. Posts submitted to Professor Dunn by approved participants will be answered by him on a daily basis. The messages from Seminar List members and the replies of Professor Dunn will be posted regularly to the XTalk List, allowing XTalk members or List observers who are not subscribed to the Seminar to see the course of the exchanges.


Topics for discussion are those which are the issues and arguments raised in Professor Dunn's paper "Jesus in Oral Memory" concerning the pre-literary stages of the transmission of the Jesus tradition. Since the discussion of these issues as set out in Professor Dunn's article will be the Seminar's initial focal point, a major prerequisite for anyone wishing to participate in the Seminar is one's familiarity with the contents and theses of this work.

PLEASE NOTE that while applications for membership in
