Ahoy out there fellow Bibliobloggers! With May Day underway, it’s now time to update The Complete List of Biblioblogs. Hopefully I’ll have these additions sorted out and added to the the list by the end of the day.
This month we have the following additions (which will also be syndicated at the Biblioblog Reference Library) in order of request:
Midrash etc. by Carl Kinbar who holds a B.A. in Philosophy at Queens College, Masters in Jewish Studies at Spertus College in Chicago, and currently working on his dissertation. — As its title suggests, it’s mostly about Midrash (… “etc.” :-) ).
Pious Fabrications by David Withun who holds a BA in History through American Military University — David’s writings are primarily focused ancient and medieval history, Patristic theology, Hellenic and Christian philosophy, interspersed here and there with issues of contemporary Christian interest from the perspective of an Orthodox Christian.
Antoninus by Tony Siew who is a Lecturer in New Testament LLB and holds a PhD in Biblical Studies. You probably know his work best from his other blog, Revelation is Real.
Ecce Homo by Mike Whitenton who is a Ph.D. student in Biblical Studies at Baylor University — His blog discusses NT Studies, Christian Origins, and their corollaries.
The Blog of Alin Suciu who is a Doctoral researcher in Coptic Studies at the University of Helsinki. — His forté is, of course, Coptic Studies and Coptic Christianity and he has done some wonderful work with identifying manuscript fragments which he has shared with magnificent illustrations.
First Testament by Ryan K. Collins who holds a B.S. in Religion from Liberty University and will begin his MA at George Fox Evangelical Seminary in the Fall of 2011 — By “First Testament” Studies, he means Old Testament Studies (which I admit threw me off to start), and has plenty of insight.
Sword in the Fire by Theron Mathis — A Baptist convert to Orthodox Christianity, Theron has some unique insights about Eastern Orthodox tradition and interpretation. His work is primarily focused upon Orthodox Studies and Patristics.
Into our Related Blogs section we have:
Bible Land Studies – Blog by Duane Patterson who holds a Masters of Ministry, two Certificates in Field Archaeology from Pima Community College, now working towards Masters Degree in Biblical Archaeology through Trinity Southwest University. I highly recommend it.
The Bible Reading Project by Jonathan Ammon who holds a B.A. in Writing and English Literature from University of Pittsburgh. — This blog is shaping up to be a list of reviews of different Bible translations as well as strategies for personally annotating and reading the Bible.
Three blogs by Mike Gantt:
The following blogs have moved:
Sententiae Nil by Seth Ehorn is now at http://sententiaenil.wordpress.com/
Dr. Claude Mariottini – Professor of Old Testament is now at http://claudemariottini.org/
We also bid farewell to the following blog:
Revelation is Real by Tony Siew – This blog has been depreciated to make way for his new Antoninus blog as mentioned amongst the new arrivals.
Finally, an announcement:
I plan to re-assess the categories in the list over the next few months, and in the end they may undergo some revision and reorganization. Some categories have become huge and unruly where others continue to be underdeveloped. Hopefully I can come up with a scheme that will work well and I promise that I will not resort to AACR2, LOC or Dewey Decimal. :-)
