Textual criticism continues at Aberdeen

The University of Aberdeen has now announced here the 3 people they are appointing to replace Simon Gathercole and myself on our departure (they advertised 2 positions, but decided on the day to appoint 3). I'm delighted that textual criticism will continue at Aberdeen in the work of Tomas Bokedal (earlier featured here on ETC). Jutta Leonard-Balzer with her range of languages (Coptic, Ethiopic, Armenian) and Jane Heath with her background as a Classicist will also, I'm sure, have something to offer to those interested in TC. I'm very pleased with these appointments and offer my congratulations to them all. I currently have the pleasure of the company of Tomas and his wife Anna, who are staying with us for a few days while they make arrangements for their move.

Congrats to all three. That is good news for Aberdeen. Jane tells me she is VERY keen on textual criticism.

I sent an e-mail to Simon Gathercole at his University of Cambridge e-mail address on Wednesday. I would like to ensure that this is in fact a valid address for him. I do not want to post it here, but would appreciate a reply to my e-mail address at johntjeff@verizon.net. I am inquiring about an article he did a few years ago in JSNT on Rom. 2:14-15. Thank you!
