Ayers Auditorium (Brown-Kopel Business Center)
November 2, 2018
The purpose of the FHU Graduate School of Theology Research Symposium is to bring in a well-known expert in a field relevant to biblical studies for academic advancement. The 2018 symposium will feature the life and works of the Dutch Catholic scholar Desiderius Erasmus Roterodamus (1466-1536).
With the permission of Pope Leo X (1475-1521), Erasmus published his first of five editions of the Greek-Latin New Testament in 1516. The third edition of Erasmus’ Greek New Testament (1522) was used by William Tyndale in his English translation and influenced other English translations, including the King James Version of 1611. Along with his influence on the history of the English, Greek, and Latin New Testaments, Erasmus wrote on a number of other topics related specifically to Christian discipleship or human advancement in general. In addition to his five editions of the Greek NT (1516-1535), this year’s symposium will also highlight Erasmus’ Handbook of the Christian Soldier (1501) and Paraphrases on the New Testament (1517-1524).
In addition to presentations by Dr. Rick Brumback and Dr. Doug Burleson, two faculty members from the FHU Graduate School of Theology, lectures will also be presented by Dr. Darren T. Williamson, who serves as the preaching minister for the Keizer church of Christ in Keizer, Oregon. Dr. Williamson’s 2005 dissertation is titled “Erasmus of Rotterdam's Influence upon Anabaptism: The Case of Balthasar Hubmaier.”
