      Old-time Crosstalkers will remember Steve Davies's contributions to
      the list back in its heyday and it's great to see news of this award
      at Misericordia:


      . . . . Stevan L. Davies, Ph.D., professor of religious studies,
      received the Louis and Barbara Alesi Excellence in Scholarship Award
      for the third time. The annual award recognizes and promotes the
      academic accomplishments of faculty members in terms of their
      scholarship and/or artistic achievements. Faculty members are selected
      by the Misericordia University Faculty Awards Committee. Dr. Davies
      also received the award in 2000 and 2005.

      Dr. Davies of Dallas, Pa., has a bachelor’s degree from Duke
      University and a doctorate in philosophy from Temple University. He
      has taught religion at Misericordia University for 31 years. During
      that time, he has published seven books, including “The Secret Book of
      John Annotated and Explained,’’ and his most recent release, “The
      Infancy Gospels of Jesus: Apocryphal Tales from the Childhoods of Mary
      and Jesus Annotated & Explained.’’

      His most recent single-authored book is a continuation of his studies
      of the New Testament apocrypha. The book is an analysis and commentary
      on the Gospel of James, the Gospel of the Infancy and the Infancy
      Gospel of Thomas. Dr. Davies also was awarded a federal National
      Endowment for the Humanities grant to study ancient and contemporary
      religion in Oaxaca, Mexico. The summer institute in Oaxaca led to an
      exhibition of Oaxacan revolutionary woodcuts at the Pauly Friedman Art
      Gallery and to two published essays, “The Popul Vuh’s Myth of the
      Origin of Shamans,’’ and “On the Use of the Term Sacrifice in Maya
      Studies,’’ by the Community College Humanities Review.

      Dr. Davies also appeared on the History Channel about Gnosticism for a
      program on the Shroud of Turin and has published book reviews and
      presented at many professional conferences . . . . .

      Congratulations to Stevan!
