Classical Reading Group

The CSCO Classical Reading group will continue to meet this semester to discuss Graeco-Roman literature broadly contemporary with the NT.  The programme for the next few months looks like this:

February 16 – 2 Maccabees (introduced by Dr. Helen Bond)

March 29 – Tacitus’ Annals (introduced by Dr. Sandra Bingham, Dept. of Classics)

April 26 – Plutarch’s Lives of Demetrius and Antony (introduced by Dr. Sean Adams)

Prof Steve Mason will visit the School in late May to give a two-day talk on the Judaean war. We will aim to meet in the run-up to that (date to be decided) to discuss Josephus’ account of the war.

All meetings are in the Porteous Room, New College at 1pm. As ever, all are invited.
