The latest Corinthiaka for this cold Monday morning:

  • (via Matt Malcolm’s blog) A conference on May 14 at Macquarie University on the theme of “Corinth – Paul, People and Politics,” sponsored by the Society for the Study of Early Christianity.  A seminar (May 12) in advance of the conference on the theme of “The Economy of Ancient Corinth.”
  • Bill Caraher visits Justinian, Victorinus, and the Isthmus in Verona
  • Anyone know the original context of this National Geographic image by Herbert Herget depicting (mostly naked) “Ancient Greeks haul(ing) a merchant ship over the Greek isthmus to Corinth”?  This is ca. 1944, a decade before Verdelis’ excavation of the road.
  • An article in the Huffington Post on the popular and profound meanings of 1 Corinthians 13 (note the author’s mistranslation of “philos”, note 1 Corinthians 13 and the Wedding Crashers)
  • In September, I posted a link to a relatively new documentary on the diolkos of Corinth in Greek.  Here is a version in English: Part 1 and Part 2.
