Academic Scholarship on Reddit

Today I learned (sorry, I couldn’t resist using that popular Reddit phrase in this context) that there is a subreddit on Reddit dedicated to matters pertaining to the academic study of the Bible.

One interesting discovery there was an article by Greg Jenks, available on Academia.edu, on “The Quest for the Historical Nazareth.”

There is also a subreddit dedicated to the exchange of scholarly articles.

The internet continues to impact and transform the way scholarship is done, and the ways in which it can be done. Requests in e-mail lists and on blogs for an article to which one doesn’t have access are very common. Using Reddit to create a more systematic way of seeking such assistance is a great idea.
