    Sounds like a great set of lectures. Unfortunately, I’ll be quite a ways out of town. I’d like more information on Wendy Mayer’s presentation, if any is ever made available. I am doing some research that deals peripherally with the cult of the Maccabees, and given her past work with Chrysostom and the cults of the saints, I’m sure it will be excellent.
