Would be great if someone would put together a list of the 10 most important discoveries we have made regarding the history of early Christianity in the last ten years.

Or even a list of the top ten things since David Friedrich Strauss's time. I am coming more and more to feel that almost nothing is being learned of major importance about early christian history. No matter how hard I look for lists of major advances in our knowledge of early Christian history I cannot find lists of such an item anywhere. When I ask individual academics, they sort of shrug there shoulders, and may say "we've made advances in textual criticism" or "the nag hamadi scrolls were a great discovery"... The first is a tool, and send is a find.

And do not say anything about early christianity. they may be tools or material for some such potential major advance, but they are not advances in our understanding of early Christian history in themselves.

If people are now blogging about christian history, and even individual academics, are now actually creating their own blogs, and posting almost daily, where are lists of the major things we have discovered?
