Intended Outcomes

1. To provide an model of interdisciplinary and inter-continental scholarly cooperation

Research teams composed of scholars from the USA, The Netherlands, and Germany

Scholars and graduate students in classics, Judaica, biblical studies, patristics, and Late Antiquity

A published volume of articles, written by these research teams and individuals in them, that exemplify extended interdisciplinary research. Expected publication date: 2011

A website rich with resources—derived from this interdisciplinary endeavor—aimed at the ongoing study of this and related topics

Essays in the forums of academe (e.g., Chronicle of Higher Education) and of discrete disciplines (e.g., Review of Biblical Literature) that review this research project in order to discuss the benefits and drawbacks of conducting this sort of interdisciplinary scholarship

2. To provide a model of scholarly mentoring

Research teams composed of two established scholars and one junior scholar who work closely together for two years, meet once in 2010 for intense research, and meet in 2011 with other teams for mutual critique

Scholars in all disciplines in all stages of their careers

Lifelong relationships between mentors and protégés that are rooted in this common research.

Essays in the forums of academe (e.g., Chronicle of Higher Education) and of discrete disciplines (e.g., Review of Biblical Literature) that discuss the benefits and drawbacks of conducting scholarship in the context of mentor-protégé relationships

3. To provide the first state-of-the-art global internet resource for the study of the historical roots of early Christian pneumatology and, more expansively, inspiration in Antiquity

Website, professionally constructed and maintained

 

All users of the internet—from a general audience to scholars

 

By early 2011, a website will be available to all users of the internet. Its content will be meticulously maintained and regularly updated.

In 2011, this website will stream— worldwide—presentations from the symposium at the University of Leiden.

Beginning in 2011, other important lectures from around the globe and events will be streamed via ITunes U.

If possible, Professor Levison’s public lecture in Boston (2010 or 2011), delivered under the auspices of the International Catacomb Society, will be streamed via ITunes U.

4. To shape the study of the vital question of inspiration in Antiquity—a topic that is an indispensable but neglected dimension of the Greco-Roman world, formative Judaism, and the emergence of Christianity

Research teams dedicated to the topic (2009-11) who will meet as units, gather in the context of a symposium, and write articles that exemplify an interdisciplinary approach to this topic

 

Scholars and students, as well as others for whom this is an indispensable topic

A symposium at the University of Leiden on this topic (2010)

A website devoted exclusively to this topic (2011-)

A published volume of collected studies (2011)

A public lecture in Boston (2010 or 2011)

A coterie of young scholars equipped to engage this question and to encourage, in turn, their protégés to pursue further interdisciplinary research on the question of the historical roots of early Christian pneumatology and topics related to this vital inquiry (2011-)
