toral research and stressed the role of ANE royal ideology as the background for rightly reading the Song of Songs as a Solomonic book. Two Neutestamentler also made presentations. Anthony Giambrone, OP, delivered a paper in the Historical Jesus section, where the discussion this year focused upon historiography of the so-called “Third Quest”. His talk was entitled ‘Die größte Tat der deutschen Theologie’: Schweitzer, Lagrange, and the German Roots of Historical Jesus Research and, together with the other presentations, it will be published in a special issue of the Journal for the Study of the Historical Jesus. Gregory Tatum, OP, in his turn, made an energizing and substantial presentation as the centerpiece of a special, ecumenical panel sponsored by the École. Playing on the 500 th anniversary of the Reformation, Fr. Tatum’s paper offered A Participationist Eschatological Reading of Justification in Galatians, Philippians, and Romans. Douglas Campell of Duke University and Mark Elliot of St. Andrew’s in Scottland were the invited respondents. The timely topic clearly struck a chord, since the room was too small to hold the large number of eager listeners. Another special event, a “Fireside Chat”, was organized one evening around Émile Puech, who was an invited guest of Prof. Bernd Schipper and the meeting organizers. The lovely room in the faculty of theology building was filled to capacity and all enjoyed the delightful and interesting interview, at once personal and professional, which honored Fr. Puech’s long and illustrious career as a scholar of the Dead Sea Scrolls. Dennis Halft, OP, finally, a friar of the Province of Teutonia, who is offering lectures and living at the École this year, also made a very erudite presentation, The Roman Arabic Vulgate in 17th-Century Persia: Some Notes on the Cross-Cultural Effects of the First Edition of the Gospels in Arabic Translation. The paper explored the biblical sources used by Twelver Shiite scholars in Safavid Iran and was delivered in the EABS section The Bible in Arabic in Judaism, Christianity, Islam. The impressive diversity in methodologies and fields of research, the creativity and high quality of all the various presentations offer an encouraging sign of the vitality and balance of biblical research at the École. From an honored professor emeritus to a newly minted doctor, from three regular professors to a visiting lecturer completing a post-doc project, the signs of a robust intellectual community were on admirable display in Berlin. In November, the École was once more represented at the SBL Annual Meeting in Boston, which hosted more than 1,200 academic sessions over the course of four days. Frs. Olivier-Thomas Venard, Gregory Tatum, and Lukasz Popko offered various presentations and the massive exposition of bible books and software provided an occasion for the brothers working on the Bible in its Traditions project to celebrate the publication of Hosea, the first biblical book entirely annotated on the BEST model. Encounters with potential contributors and a large number of former students and friends from all over the world were made possible thanks to the hospitality of Peeters, who put a special, well-placed stand at the disposal of the EBAF. The meetings in both Boston and Berlin allowed the École to make an excellent impression and advance its international reputation. Fr.
