RE: [John_Lit] RE: Conference?
- Hi there, Beth, nice to see you at the Toronto meetings! Here's the information on the conference, as distributed by John Donahue:
Theme: "Life in Abundance; An International Conference on Johannine Studies In Memory of Raymond E. Brown, S.S."
Dates: October 16-18, 2003
Location: St Mary's Seminary & University, 5400 Roland Ave. Baltimore, MD 21210
Coordinator of Conference: Rev. John R. Donahue, S.J.
Information: Mrs. Elizabeth Visconage, bvisconage@...
It looks like it will be an excellent conference, and an excellent selection of themes and scholars is being organized by John Donahue.
May I also remind my colleagues of the St Andrews Conference on The Gospel of John and Christian Theology, hosted and organized by Richard Bauckham (see http://www.st-andrews.ac.uk/academic/divinity/john_2.html).
These promise to be excellent opportunities for the international community of Johannine scholars to engage and further our investigations together.

Subject: [John_Lit] RE: Conference?
Hello. During Monday's Johannine Literature session at SBL, an
announcement was made concerning a Johannine Literature conference in
honor of the memory of Raymond E. Brown. Unfortunately, I had to depart
the session early to catch a plane and was not able to pick up the flyer
concerning this conference. If anyone knows the details about this
event, would you please be so kind as to pass them on to me?
