CSART is proud to have been able to support research that has resulted in a variety of publications and to celebrate the publications of its fellows and scholars:
Wendell Willis, ed. Eucharist and Ecclesiology. Essays in Honor of Dr. Everett Ferguson. Eugene, OR: Pickwick, 2017.
This volume features authors from different Christian traditions, who gathered on the ACU campus for colloquy honoring the 80th birthday of long-time ACU Professor of Early Christianity, Everett Ferguson.
“The Eucharist is at the same time the beating heart of the Church’s worship and a flashpoint of sacramental separation. This excellent collection of scholarly and readable essays explores eucharistic theology in biblical, historical, and ecumenical perspectives, and relates it to the doctrine of the Church. A useful resource and a fine achievement.”
–Paul Avis, University of Exeter, UK; Editor-in-Chief of Ecclesiology; Editor of The Oxford Handbook of Ecclesiology
Restoration Quarterly 59 (2017) features articles from speakers at CSART’s inaugural event and the Carmichael-Walling Lectures, held at ACU in November 2016.
Jeff W. Childers. “Center for the Study of Ancient Religious Texts.”
Hieromonk Justin of Sinai. “Newly Recovered Manuscripts of the Scriptures from Saint Catharine’s Monastery, Sinai.”
Mark Hamilton. “Who’s Afraid of Ancient Texts? Inaugural Lecture for the Center for the Study of Ancient Religious Texts.”
Jeff W. Childers, editor and translator. Jacob of Sarug’s Homilies on Praise at Table (Texts from Christian Late Antiquity 46; Piscataway, NJ: Gorgias, 2016).
Part of a series of fascicles containing the bilingual Syriac-English editions of Saint Jacob of Sarug’s homilies, this volume contains his homilies on Praise at Table. These homilies offer a glimpse into the efforts of one late antique author to construct distinctly Christian meaning from the experience of communal meal-sharing. The Syriac text is fully vocalized, and the translation is annotated with a commentary and biblical references.
