Kata Markon (The Gospel of Mark Discussion List) is a moderated academic e-list dedicated to the scholarly
discussion and evaluation of critical questions surrounding the Gospel according to Mark. The purpose of the List is to provide a forum outside of the usual arenas of printed journals and monographs where these questions may be raised, entertained, and debated.
Additionally, Kata Markon is intended to be a venue in which those working professionally in the field of Markan studies may post and receive critical responses to papers or ideas that are in the process of development.
Given the academic nature of the list, it is ordinarily expected that those subscribing and contributing to Kata
Markon will be professional scholars and graduate students who are familiar not only with the sources, tools and
methods used in the study and exegesis of the Gospel of Mark, but with the critical issues that are part and parcel of current scholarly Markan studies as well. But beginners in the serious study of the Gospel of Mark who wish to make use of the list to gain and advance their knowledge of things Markan are also welcome to participate provided they respect the List's focus and adhere to its protocols.
