For several weeks (read: months..) I have been in process of moving from Drammen (close to Oslo) to a place in the southern part of Norway, called Kvinesdal. What a terrible load of planning, packing, transporting, unloading, unpacking, relocate, finding the stuff I need in all the boxes.

Who can keep up with what Philo studies are published in such circumstances? Not me. But here are some stuff I discovered recently via the Brill web site.

Intolerance, Polemics, and Debate in Antiquity

Intolerance, Polemics, and Debate in Antiquity;scholars reflect on politico-cultural, philosophical, and religious forms of critical conversation in the ancient Near Eastern, Biblical, Graeco-Roman, and early-Islamic world.
