More on the Ethel M. Wood Lecture Series

I have been granted electronic rights to reproduce those lectures in this series that were published by the Athlone Press and have not been subsequently reprinted elsewhere, subject to the consent of the author or his/her executor. I am negociating with London University to see if I can get permission to reproduce others in the series. Contacting the authors and obtaining copeis of the lectures is taking some time, but all of the author's who have responded so far have been really enthusiastic, which is very encouraging. I should be able to upload F.F. Bruce's 1974 lecture on The 'Secret' Gospel of Mark in a few days.
