Who Wrote the Bible and Why on Earth Does it Matter? – Zoom
A conversation between Martien Halvorson-Taylor and Franny Taliaferro that explores what we know about who wrote the Hebrew Bible and the meaning of ‘writing’ and ‘authorship’ in the ancient world and ours. They will discuss what evidence and clues scholars pursue and how new answers are challenging long-held assumptions about the Bible.
Martien Halvorson-Taylor is a part-time Cornwall resident and associate professor of Religious Studies at UVA. Franny Taliaferro is a long-time resident of Cornwall and for many years taught English at the Brearley School where she first posed the question of who wrote the Bible to Martien in her 12th grade English class.
