Xtalk sponsored seminar with John Dominic Crossan, which ran from February 11 – March 3 2000. There are three ways of viewing the archive of the seminar, the first two of which are in Prof. Crossan’s own edited version. Note: the archive is big — over 80,000 words:
- View in web format (recommended for on-line viewing)
- MS Word Version (recommended for downloading to view off-line on your PC)
- Original archive, arranged in individual emails
This seminar with John Dominic Crossan ran in January 2000. I strongly recommend the archive of the previous link, however, for a higher quality, more rewarding seminar.
