Conference summaries: Healing and Exorcism in Second Temple Judaism and Early Christianity

This is Rikard Roitto, me and Tommy Wasserman (left to right as you look) listening hard to a fascinating presentation by Anthony John Lappin of Maynooth on the moving of relics in the early Christian centuries during this conference last week in Örebro, Sweden.

The organisers have now made a very helpful summary in English of this excellent conference available here, as well as a nice short video (with English translation of the bits of Swedish).

Larry Hurtado has also blogged about his (excellent) paper on the role of name of Jesus in healing and exorcism (and much else) here.

The slides from my talk on why Jesus and Paul command silence in two interesting stories in Luke and Acts are available here.

The papers will be published in due course in Mohr Siebeck’s WUNT 2 series—look out for them!
