During the first week of October, I would like to host a carnival or sorts on mythicism. I would like two ten-minute presentations, pro and con. They must be a video of some sort. No, you don’t have to be on the camera, and yes, you can just make an audio recording and turn it into a video of a powerpoint for all I care. These videos will be uploaded to a youtube account and remain private until they are released to the public. Once they are uploaded, I will then send the private links to the presenters who will in turn create a follow up. Privacy is of the utmost on these presentations, because it will allow for a more fuller discussion, especially in the next section.
Bloggers who wish to participate in this carnival by making their own videos on various topics as mythicism and the historical Jesus or even the role of historian, may file amicus curiae (1 to 2 minutes ‘briefs’ in support of your side) videos with me. They will remain private as well until the carnival.
First day, the main presentations. Second day, the follow up/rebuttals. Third day, the briefs.
Maybe if this works, we can have later carnivals of the same type, focused on an issue of the day.
What do you think? I am open to suggestions.
If you would like to submit, please email me at

Be sure to include your blog and your position. I don’t need the details, just what position you will argue for.
Presumably I should participate, as it has been several years since I have made a video addressing mythicism.
Other regular readers who participate in the discussions of mythicism may also be interested in contributing.
To those interested in the topic and in my contributing to this bibliovlogging carnival on mythicism, I would appreciate input and suggestions regarding what it would be most interesting and useful to address in the video.
