Hello members of the BRANE Collective,
This colloquium brings together scholars working on early Judaism, early Christianity, and Classics to discuss authorship and attribution beyond the typical boundaries of our fields. Monthly events through December will feature panel discussions of prominent work in this area, alongside new research presentations. Come join us to hear interdisciplinary dialogue on authorial fictions and attributions in the ancient Mediterranean, featuring top scholars in ancient history, as well as rising stars among early career researchers! Our series continues next week with two panels:

Panel 1: Panellists Ben Wright, Eva Mroczek, Jamey Walters, and Tim Whitmarsh will discuss the essay: Benjamin G.
