Simmons’ Oxford paper at the press in Belgium

The paper that Dr. Michael Bland Simmons, distinguished research professor in the Department of History, World Languages & Cultures, read at the XVI International Conference on Patristics at the University of Oxford, UK, in August 2015, has gone through final editing and will be published later this year in Studia Patristica through Peeters Press, Leuven, Belgium.

The paper, “Exegesis and Hermeneutics in Eusebius of Caesarea’s Theophany (Book IV): The Contemporary Fulfillment of Jesus’ Prophecies,” philologically compares Helenistic Greek fragments of the Theophany with parallel texts from a later Syriac translation to show how Eusebius’ interpretation of biblical prophecies changed after the Christianization of the Roman Empire under Constantine.

Simmons dedicated the paper to his four grandchildren – Hannah, Levi, Austin Michael and Ava Grace – and his two great-grandchildren ­– Alaya Maria and Emma Joy.

Clubs and Orgs – Get Visibility

Each semester the Office of Orientation and Transitions puts on the Weeks of Welcome — better known as WOW. During these weeks, clubs and organizations have the opportunity to host an event on campus from sponsoring a business breakfast to putting on an activity for all of our Warhawks.

wow_0.jpgWeeks of Welcome will last throughout the first few weeks of the new semester. If you are interested in having an event at Fall 2017 WOW, please fill out the online application. Fall 2017 WOW events are due by July 1, 2017.

Additionally, this summer, the Club and Organization Fair will be held during WOW events rather than during Orientation and Transition sessions. The Club and Organization Fair will have two dates:

  • August 22 | 11:30 a.m.–1 p.m.
  • August 30 | 5:30 p.m.–7 p.m.

Please, register your club or organization online.
