Raider's of the Lost Ark and University of Chicago Admissions
A little New Year's Day frivolity: the Chronicle of Higher Education reports a fun piece of a mysterious package that came to the admissions office. It was the journal of Abner Ravenwood addressed to the university's most famous fictional professor: Henry Walton Jones, Jr. It shouldn't be behind the pay wall so you can read about it here.
I have a Ph.D. in Religion from Columbia University. I am currently a visiting instructor in the Department of Philosophy and Religion at the University of Mississippi. My research focuses on the New Testament and emergent Christian interactions with ancient Judaism in their Greco-Roman and ancient Near Eastern environments.
