Anthony Le Donne, Dagmar Winter – The Jesus Criteria Conference


I have read both of Le Donne’s books. Both are pleasurably insightful. The first is pleasurably dense. It turned me on to social memory. He begins with Johannes Weiss.. Roots of coherence. His presentation is accompanied by a PowerPoint. Woot. And it looks good. Really good.

Still… Yep, never mind. As I was writing this, he mentioned fully formed form criticism. And now I see Dodd and Bultmann.


Calm down, Jim.

Argues against the Perrin Criteria of Coherence. Um…. Calls it bankrupt

Now, Winter is up. Her work with Theissan is crest, but she is always cautious. Do not assume it is over… That’s why it is called a quest.
