August 17, 2011 | Written by Matt Carter
An international conference on the study of Ephesus and its connection to the New Testament will be held at HST as a tribute to the 65th birthday of professor Richard E Oster.
The May 18-19, 2012, conference is slated to acknowledge Oster’s work on ancient Ephesus as a religious center and site of early Christian activity.
Dr. Oster’s contributions to the study of ancient Ephesus include, among other work, a Princeton Theological Seminary dissertation, “A Historical Commentary on the Missionary Success Stories in Acts 19:11-40,” an ANRW essay on “Ephesus as a Religious Center Under the Principate I. Paganism Before Constantine,” and A Bibliography on Ancient Ephesus; With Introduction and Index. Former students and colleagues will offer papers on Ephesian material culture and on early Christian texts connected to Ephesus.
