Contact InformationCAS Workshop
DescriptionJennie Grillo, assistant professor in the Department of Theology at the University of Notre Dame, will make a presentation for the Hebrew Bible Workshop. Currently working on a book project on the Additions to Daniel and their history of interpretation, she will discuss how Christians and Jews, especially in Late Antiquity, found in the Greek versions of Daniel resources for the developing discourses of martyrdom, and how that might help us read the biblical book today.
Professor Jennie Grillo teaches courses in Hebrew Bible/Old Testament and is the author of "The Story of Israel in the Book of Qohelet: Ecclesiastes as Cultural Memory" (Oxford University Press 2012), which won a Manfred Lautenschlaeger Award. Refreshments will be served. For information or accessibility concerns, please contact Aslan Cohen Mizrahi at aslancmiz@uchicago.edu.
