Q, Identity, and Violence




In the summer of 2009, I presented a paper on the rhetoric of apocalyptic violence in Q during the International Meeting of the Society of Biblical Literature ("A Social Identity Approach to the Rhetoric of Apocalyptic Violence in the Sayings Gospel Q"). The meetings were held at the Pontifical Biblical Institute in Rome. The paper has just been published in a special issue on Violence and Identity in History of Religions.
