Hypotyposeis: Sketches in Biblical Studies
The blogger is Stephen Carlson, whom many will know from his fine Synoptic Problem Homepage as well as his many excellent contributions to the academic e-lists over the years. From more recently, see his work on NT Stemmatics. Stephen is a fine scholar and I look forward very much to reading this blog, which yesterday featured an interesting post on the James Ossuary. Excerpt:
After the forgery was uncovered, I was quite dismayed that the initial scientific report of the ossuary had been so unrealiable [sic], so I decided to analyze the report from Rosenfeld and Ilani of the Geological Survey of Israel (GSI) published in BAR, vol. 28, no. 6, (Nov./Dec. 2002), p. 29, in greater detail. As it turned out, the actual report merely established the antiquity of the ossuary and its analysis of the inscription was too inadequate to have been relied upon.
