The Fall 2012 The James W. Richard Lectures at UVa present Professor Peter Brown this week. He will speak in Harrison Auditorium at 4 p.m. on November 13, 14, and 15.
I have read many of Peter Brown’s books in Church History and I have always benefited from them. He is a master who (with superior scholarship and a writing style which is best described as beautiful) weaves the story of the Church’s life in antiquity by exploring the life of specific Christians. Peter Brown’s work has as way of completely reorienting one’s point-of-view on the subject his explores.
