Writing in Seventh-Century BC Levant

The Neal A. Maxwell Institute for Religious Scholarship is sponsoring a one-day conference on 31 August 2012, entitled “Writing in Seventh-Century BC Levant.”  (The Levant is, essentially, the area of modern-day Israel/Palestine, Syria, Lebanon, and Jordan.)

I won’t be there, but not because of pique or a flair for dramatic gestures.  Instead, I’ll be headed that day to Turkey, where, somewhat curiously given recent events, I’ll be helping to lead a visit of Maxwell Institute donors to Istanbul/Constantinople, Ephesus, and Cappadocia.
