CATENA project members participate in Editorial Conference in Greece

Five members of staff from the CATENA project took part in an international consultation in Greece last week on the text of the Pauline Epistles.

 The event, with over forty participants, was organised and hosted at the Volos Academy for Theological Studies over four days and supported by the Museum of the Bible Greek Paul Project. There were presentations of ongoing work, including the CATENA project and other ongoing research at ITSEE, and discussions about methodology, practice and software development. Other participants came from the USA, Germany, Italy, Sweden and Lebanon, as well as the home team from Greece.

 On Friday 12 October, the four lead editors of the Editio Critica Maior of the Greek New Testament (Prof. Holger Strutwolf, Professor Martin Karrer, Dr Klaus Wachtel and Professor Hugh Houghton) gave a public presentation of their work in the Theology Faculty of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki. The lectures were preceded by a presentation on the Byzantine text of the New Testament by the renowned Professor Ioannis Karavidopoulos, as well as a reception at the Patriarchal Institute for Patristic Studies in Thessaloniki.
