Students of the New Testament and early Christianity may find the Bryn Mawr Classical Review helpful. Somehow a while back I subscribed to receive the reviews (free) via email. I get four or five some days, and don’t always have time to read them all. In a general sense everything about classical Greek and Latin literature and language has some bearing on understanding the NT, but many of the books reviewed relate directly to early Christianity or Judaism.
Most of the books reviewed are in English, as are most of the reviews. However, one occasionally finds some German, French, or Italian included. Yesterday’s reviews included one written in English by a German reviewing a German-published edition of Coptic texts.
The list of “Books Received” in February, lists several with *asterisks (meaning they are are available for review) that would be of interest to the study of Urchristentum.
(By the way, looking at the sentence above “Somehow a while back . . .”–I remembered the rule for composing in German —TMP–Time, Manner, Place. So, had I written in German it should have begun, “A while back” and then, “somehow.”)
I also stumbled onto a great site for the study of Beowulf that includes a German translation in a parallel column next to the Old English, here.
If you really are interested in Beowulf (a little shameless self-promotion here), I wrote a post on my other blog including several good links (Faith Matters).
