    Based at volda University College, these pages focus on "early Christian writings and their social world" but also include resoirces of interest to biblical scholars/students in general.
  • Synoptic Gospel Primer
    Mahlon Smith has made good use of hypertext links and text coloring to illustrate Synoptic Gospel issues for undergraduates. This is a "primer" only in the sense that it relies on an English translation of the text, which makes it more accessible to its intended audience. The site and its techniques merit extended study and emulation by scholars concerned with textual or textual transmission issues.
