Top 50 Discussion Groups for the Bible

Atualizado em

Peter Kirby mostra, neste post de 09.05.2014, a situação atual das listas de discussão sobre Bíblia e estudos bíblicos.

Em resumo:

  • A partir de 1999 as listas de discussão acadêmicas sobre Bíblia cresciam, ocupando o espaço do protocolo Usenet 
  • A partir de 2004 os blogs de Bíblia, os biblioblogs, passaram a ocupar o espaço das listas de discussão
  • E agora, em 2014?

In 2014, nearly all of the e-mail lists have died off or slowed to a crawl. The “Web 2.0″ revolution is now the old guard, and people are most comfortable with using the web protocol for everything. Yahoo! Groups has gone the way of Pluto: still there but not what it used to be. If Facebook is now the size of Jupiter, the blogosphere is Saturn with its rings, and Reddit is the red planet Mars. Several large web forums exist, but the Bible is only a sideshow for the big ones.

Quer dizer: as listas ainda existem e resistem. Mas hoje elas povoam mais o Facebook do que qualquer outro espaço da Internet…

Em seguida, ele lista os Top 50 Discussion Groups for the Bible.

Here are the top 50 discussion groups where you can talk about the Bible online…

Colóquio com Avraham Faust na Biblical Studies

Atualizado em

A lista de discussão Biblical Studies vai promover, de 2 a 10 de dezembro de 2012, um debate com Avraham Faust, Professor de Arqueologia na Universidade Bar-Ilan, Israel, a propósito de seu livro

Judah in the Neo-Babylonian Period: The Archaeology of Desolation. Atlanta: Society of Biblical Literature, 2012, 318 p. – ISBN 9781589836402.

Neste livro o autor argumenta – contrariando tendências recentes que dizem ser a terra vazia durante o exílio babilônico de Judá um mito – que tanto o espaço urbano quanto o rural ficaram desertos e desolados neste período, levando séculos para se recuperar…

The Babylonian conquest of Jerusalem in 586 B.C.E. was a watershed event in the history of Judah, the end of the monarchy and the beginning of the exilic period, during which many of the biblical texts were probably written. The conquest left clear archaeological marks on many sites in Judah, including Jerusalem, and the Bible records it as a traumatic event for the population. Less clear is the situation in Judah following the conquest, that is, in the sixth century, a period with archaeological remains the nature and significance of which are disputed. The traditional view is that the land was decimated and the population devastated. In the last two decades, archaeologists arguing that the land was not empty and that the exile had little impact on Judah’s rural sector have challenged this view. This volume examines the archaeological reality of Judah in the sixth century in order to shed new light on the debate. By expanding research into new avenues and examining new data, as well as by applying new methods to older data, the author arrives at fresh insights that support the traditional view of sixth-century Judah as a land whose population, both urban and rural, was devastated and whose recovery took centuries.

Avraham Faust is Professor of Archaeology at the Martin (Szusz) Department of Land of Israel Studies and Archaeology at Bar-Ilan University. He has published extensively on the archaeology and history of the Southern Levant with special emphasis on Iron Age Israelite society.

ANE-2: uma lista de discussão sobre o antigo Oriente Médio

Atualizado em

Com o fechamento da lista de discussão ANE, centenas de pesquisadores estão migrando para a recém-criada lista ANE-2. Acabo de me inscrever. Veja abaixo a descrição oficial da lista, fundada no dia 14 de fevereiro de 2006.

A successor to the Ancient Near East Discussion List originally hosted by the Oriental Institute at the University of Chicago. ANE-2 is a moderated academic discussion list that focuses on topics and issues of interest in Ancient Near Eastern Studies, from the Indus to the Nile, and from the beginnings of human habitation to the rise of Islam. It is intended to provide a forum for the exchange of ideas on these topics between and among scholars and students actively engaged in research and study of the Ancient Near East. Active (on-list) participation in ANE-2 assumes an informed knowledge of the ancient Near East and adherence to List Protocols. The act of subscribing to the list signifies the agreement of the subscriber to follow these protocols and to accept the adjudications of the Moderators. ANE-2 is international in scope. Listmembers should expect to be able to read postings in English, French and German. Participants are free to post in any of these languages, and, upon occasion, in other languages used in the study of the Ancient Near East.
