Here and There

1. The XXV International Congress of Papyrology is on from July 29 - August 4 2007 at the University of Michigan. The programme (they obviously call this a program, but we won't fall for that one here) features loads of papers of interest to biblical text critics (by Scott Charlesworth, Don Barker, Juan Chapa, Anne Marie Luijendijk) and others which look interesting from an exegetical and Umwelt perspective, as well as papers on palaeography and Greek language. The programme (ha!) is available in pdf, as are abstracts, and can be accessed here. I wonder if anyone is planning to attend who might blog some of the papers for us?

2. Rick Brannon is blogging on manuscripts of the Pastoral Epistles: intro and 0259 and 0262 (this last with a photo and a strange comment about me).

3. Stephen Carlson has written on conjectural emendations proposed for 1 Cor 4:6, discussing James C. Hanges, “1 Corinthians 4:6 and the Possibility of Written Bylaws in the Corinthian Church,” JBL 117 (1998): 275-298; and 1 Cor 15:31-32, discussing Dennis R. MacDonald, “A Conjectural Emendation of 1 Cor 15:31-32: Or the Case of the Misplaced Lion Fight,” HTR 73 (1980): 265-276.
