MA Alumnus Publishes Book
Jason Lamoreaux, a 2003 graduate of the M.A. program in Classics, has published a new book: Ritual, Women, and Philippi: Reimagining the Early Philippian Community (Cascade Books, 2013). Using the discipline of ritual studies and archaeological evidence along with texts, the work aims to bring to life the ritual lives of ancient Philippian women of the fledgling Jesus movement in their cultural context. The study thus sheds light on the reception by this community of Paul’s letter. After graduating from U.K., Jason received a Ph.D. in biblical interpretation from the Brite Divinity School of Texas Christian University, where he studied under the internationally noted biblical scholar Lynn Osiek. He also served as co-editor of the Festschrift for his professor published as: Finding a Woman’s Place: Essays in Honor of Carolyn Osiek (2011). Hearty congratulations!
