The first edition of Relegere: Studies in Religion and Reception is now available. Whilst not wanting to steal the thunder from the Dunedin school who founded this potentially groundbreaking journal and did all the hard work, it is obviously even more important to point out that there are, naturally, Sheffield contributions (Crossley, Davies) and one by a Sheffield old boy (Harding). Here is the Table of Contents for the first edition:
Editorial: Beyond Christianity, the Bible, and the Text: Urgent Tasks and New Orientations
Mark Dennis, Rethinking Premodern Japanese Buddhist Texts: A Case Study of Prince Shōtoku’s “Sangyō-gisho”James E. Harding, David and Jonathan between Athens and Jerusalem
James Crossley, Life of Brian or Life of Jesus? Uses of Critical Biblical Scholarship and Non-orthodox Views of Jesus in Monty Python’s Life of Brian
Gitte Buch-Hansen, Lars von Trier’s Antichrist, the Bible, and Docetic Masculinity
Philip R. Davies, Reading the Bible Intelligently
The journal is open access, free etc.
