Re: Washington DC Bible mss exhibit
- There will be a special session devoted to the Freer MSS at this
year's SBL in Washington, DC, USA. Larry Hurtado organised and edited
a book on the Freer MSS which should be published in time for the SBL
meeting. I think that Prof. Hurtado had something to do with reminding
the Smithsonian that they had one of the oldest gospel codices in the
world languishing in their vaults. I believe that he encouraged them
to do something on the centenary of the Freer MSS acquisition by
Freer. Of course, I might have my wires crossed...
On the Washington Post article, I wouldn't have called Tischendorf and
the monks of St Catherine's "a group of excavators."
