SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT
Corpus Paulinum ONLINE SEMINAR WITH RICHARD A. HORSLEY

The moderators of the Corpus Paulinum Discussion List
(http://www.ibiblio.org/corpus-paul/)
are pleased to announce that Richard A. Horsley,

     Distinguished Professor of Liberal Arts and the Study of
     Religion, Department of Classics and Religion,  at the
     University of Massachusetts (Boston), editor of Paul and
     Empire (1997) and Paul and Politics (2000), and author of
     Jesus and the Spiral of Violence (1992), Sociology and the
     Jesus Movement (1989), Archeology, History, and Society in
     Galilees (1996), and many other works,

has agreed to conduct a two week online Seminar with Corpus Paulinum
members and other interested parties on the ideas and arguments set out
in chapters 5-9 of Richard A. Horsley and Neil Asher Silberman, The
Message and the Kingdom. (Minneapolis: Fortress Press, 2002) and the
Introduction and the introductory essays to each of the four chapters in
Paul and Empire.

The Seminar, to be carried out under the auspices of Corpus Paulinum and
its managers,  will begin on Monday, April 22nd, and will run until
Friday, May 3rd, 2002.

So as to be managed effectively, the Seminar will be conducted on a
subscription only basis (for instructions on subscribing, see below),
and all posts submitted by Seminar members will be and  be subject to
selection by the seminar's moderators.  Posts selected as best suited to
further the discussion will be answered by Professor Horsley on a daily
basis.

The messages from Seminar List members and the replies of Professor
Horsley will be posted regularly to the Seminar’s Home page
(http://groups.yahoo.com/group/HorsleySeminar/ ) and will be publicly
accessible at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/HorsleySeminar/messages

However, only Seminar subscribers will have the privilege of posting
messages.

The focus of the Seminar is the thesis set out by Professor Horsley in
The Message and the Kingdom and Paul and Empire that Paul’s message of
the cross and his missionary activity stands counter to, and as a
polemic against, Roman imperial power and its gospel of the Pax Romana.

Accordingly,  a major prerequisite for anyone wishing to participate in
the Seminar is one's
familiarity with these works. Information on The Message and the Kingdom
may be found at:
http://fortresspress.com/store/idetail.asp?ISBN=0800634675.  Information
on Paul and Empire may be found at http://www.livingthegoodnews.com/
