The University of Michigan’s Frankel Center for Judaic Studies hosts an international conference on Second Temple Judaism and Christian Origins, which takes place on 12-13 April 2022.

The Frankel Institute for Advanced Studies dedicated this year to the study of Second Temple Judaism and Christian origins. This two-day event is an opportunity to reflect as a community upon the past, present, and future of the field of Second Temple Judaism that is increasingly more complex (methodologies, geography, intergenerational) and its place within Judaic Studies. The hybrid event is organized in a seminar format and welcomes the 2022 Frankel Fellows, members of the University of Michigan community, and two special guests in the field of Second Temple Judaism, Prof. John Collins (Yale Divinity) and Prof. Amy-Jill Levine (Hartford International University/ Vanderbilt University – Emerita ). Each day will close with a public lecture by our distinguished guests.

I am organizing session 4, on “Material Culture,” in which I will also discuss “Material Philology and the Dead Sea Scrolls.”
