Jul 9, 2019 2:00pm ‐ Jul 9, 2019 3:30pm

John Dominic Crossan, author,
The Life of a Mediterranean Jewish Peasant

John Dominic Crossan is an Irish-American biblical scholar with post-doctoral diplomas in exegesis from Rome’s Pontifical Biblical Institute and in archeology from Jerusalem’s École Biblique. He has been a mendicant friar and a catholic priest, a Co-Chair of the Jesus Seminar, and a President of the Society of Biblical Literature. His focus, whether scholarly or popular, whether in books, videos, or lectures, is on the historical Jesus as the norm and criterion for the entire Christian Bible. His reconstructed Jesus incarnates nonviolent resistance to the Romanization of his Jewish homeland and the Herodian commercialization of his Galilean lake as present program and future hope of a transformed world and transfigured earth. Crossan’s method is to situate biblical texts within the reconstructed matrix of their own their own genre and purpose, their own time and place, and to hear them accurately for then before accepting or rejecting them for now

Carol Meyers, Mary Grace
Wilson Professor Emerita of
Religion, Duke University

Dr. Carol Meyers is the Mary Grace Wilson Professor Emerita of Religion at Duke University. Teaching at Duke since 1977, she writes, teaches, lectures, and publishes widely in the areas of biblical studies, archaeology, and the study of women and gender in the biblical world. A prolific scholar, she is the author of more than 450 articles, reports, reference-book entries, and reviews; and she has authored, co-authored, or edited twenty-two books. Her 2013 book, Rediscovering Eve: Ancient Israelite Women in Context, is a landmark study of women in ancient Israelite society. Other recent books include a commentary on the book of Exodus and several excavation reports (with Eric Meyers). Among her co-edited volumes are Archaeology, Bible, Politics, and the Media (2012) and The Bible in the Public Square (2014).

As a field archaeologist, Meyers has been a staff member or co-director of numerous archaeological projects in Israel. She has been a frequent consultant for media productions relating to archaeology and the Bible, including A&E’s Mysteries of the Bible series, DreamWorks’s “Prince of Egypt,” and Nova’s “The Bible’s Buried Secrets.” She has also served on the editorial boards of many reference works and journals and was a senior editor of the Oxford Encyclopedia of Archaeology in the Near East. She is currently a trustee of the American Schools of Oriental Research and Vice-President of the Albright Institute of Archaeological Research in Jerusalem. She is also a member of the Board of Directors of the Dead Sea Scrolls Foundation, and recently served as President of the Society of Biblical Literature.

Described as "one of today's leading historians and field archeologists," Dr. Meyers’ 1988 book, Discovering Eve: Ancient Israelite Women in Context, was the "first comprehensive effort to present a female-centered view of the Bible using historical rather than literary criticism."

Dr. Meyers holds a B.A. with honors from Wellesley College in Wellesley, Massachusetts, and her M.A. and Ph.D. from Brandeis University.
