2015 York Christian Apocrypha Symposium Updates

The 2015 York University Christian Apocrypha Symposium—“Fakes, Forgeries, and Fictions: Writing Ancient and Modern Christian Apocrypha”—has a spiffy new web site (an update of the 2011 web site designed by Sarah Veale, accessible at http://tonyburke.ca/conference/) featuring the preliminary schedule, registration information, etc. The careful reader may notice that there are two changes to the line-up of presenters. Paul Dilley and Caitlin Purcell had to withdraw from the conference, but in their places we welcome Brent Landau (now doing double-duty as conference co-organizer and presenter), who joins the panel on writing apocrypha in antiquity with his paper  “Under the Influence (of the Magi): Did Hallucinogens Play a Role in the Inspired Composition of the Pseudepigraphic Revelation of the Magi?”, and Eric Vanden Eykel, who joins the modern apocrypha panel with “Expanding the Apocryphal Corpus: Some ‘Novel’ Suggestions.” Abstracts for both papers are available on the web site.
