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 assistant professor in the Department of Religion at Illinois Wesleyan University. My research focuses on the New Testament and emergent Christians in their ancient Jewish and Greco-Roman environments.
