On January 30., there will be an interesting seminar at The Norwegian Academy of Science and Letters, Oslo.
The purpose of the seminar is to introduce and discuss some of the new approaches that have changed New Testament studies in recent years, and at the same time present them in a way that is accessible to non-specialists. Norwegian scholars have been active in this development, and have participated internationally in many areas. The speakers are Norwegian and international specialists in their areas.
The targeted audience, beyond members of the Academy, are scholars and advanced students in theology and religion at Norwegian universities and colleges.
The format of the seminar is a 30 mins presentation followed by 20 mins discussion.
