Faculty and Staff Accolades

Sheila and Steve Cardone (Steve is director of housing and auxiliary services) welcomed a new son, Andrew Stephen, into the world on January 20, 2002.

Karlfried Froehlich, the Benjamin B. Warfield Professor of Ecclesiastical History Emeritus, has been spending a lot of time in Paris, France, in the past six months working on organizing the books, letters, and papers of New Testament scholar Oscar Cullmann, who died in 1999. His immediate goal is to create an electronic inventory of Cullmann’s works and a new master bibliography. Froehlich, who calls Cullmann one of the leading New Testament scholars of his generation, is also involved in plans for an international conference in celebration of Cullmann’s 100th birthday, to be held in Basel, Switzerland, in May 2002. The event will be an academic symposium titled “Biblical Interpretation and Ecumenical Passion,” and it will explore Cullmann’s contributions to early Christian studies and ecumenism.
