Prior to International SBL in St. Andrews, the University of Edinburgh will be hosting a two-day conference on “Peter in Earliest Christianity.” It will include presentations from Timothy Barnes, Markus Bockmuehl, Sean Freyne, Larry Hurtado, Peter Lampe, Tobias Nicklas, and Margaret Williams and cover the first three centuries of Christianity. Those are some big names and a great venue. If you’ve never been to Edinburgh, take this as the only excuse you need to go. I’ll see you there.
