Introduction to Professor Christopher Rowland

Christopher Rowland (1947 – ) was appointed Professor of the Exegesis of Holy Scripture at the University of Oxford in 1991.  He is one of the contributors to The Eerdmans Dictionary of Early Judaism, having covered the topic “Apocalypticism.”  “This comprehensive and authoritative volume is the first reference work devoted exclusively to Second Temple Judaism.”  Second Temple Judaism covers the time from the conquests of Alexander the Great in the 4th Century B.C. to the early 2nd century A.D.  Apocalypticism, apocalyptic interest, and apocalyptic writing is a characteristic of this period.

The subject of this video clip is not apocalypticism, but it will introduce you to Christopher Rowland.
