David L. Dungan Memorial Lecture
“History and Race: The Letters of Paul in antiquity and modernity” by Laura Nasrallah. Laura is a professor of New Testement and Early Christianity at Harvard Divinity School. Her research and teaching bring together New Testament and early Christian literature with the archaeological remains of the Mediterranean world, and often engage issues of colonialism, gender, status, and power. Her first book, An Ecstasy of Folly: Prophecy and Authority in Early Christianity, focuses on 1 Corinthians and on materials from the second- and third-century controversies over prophecy and the nature of the soul.
