Another unit I am really excited to make part of the class: these infancy gospels were so influential for so many centuries, and now students will have a chance to read them in class. I'm guessing quite a few of the students may have heard rumors of the existence of these texts, but I would wager very few have actually read them. I'm curious to find out!

- I got a big boost from Dan Brown's Da Vinci Code when that book came out! I sure wish I had had these materials in place for the students back then. Anyway, I'm really lucky that there are good public domain translations of these texts; they have been an object of great interest to scholars and while there are sometimes newer editions and more contemporary translations available now (if you can afford them!), having these free, public domain translations suits my needs perfectly! Plus, it means students can explore if they get really curious - the materials I chose for these units in class are just the tip of the extra-Biblical iceberg!Jun 19, 2014
- I usually don't do schoolwork for summer... but I made some big changes in my book-reading life, stopped working on Latin (that used to be my main hobby).. so now my own personal hobby coincides with my classes. It's very convenient, that's for sure!Jun 19, 2014
