More scholars, C, especially Chesnutt

Some further NT Gateway Scholars updates. Scholars: C has been refreshed; I've deleted Larry Chouinard -- can't find him. I've added Severino Croatto, with thanks to Luis Durruty for the link. For those who read Spanish (I don't), there's lots there.

I've updated several URLs, and this always gives me a chance to see how the quiet open-source revolution on scholars' homepages is continuing. It's something I've often mentioned here, but it is exciting to see the extent to which scholarship is being made available to a wide audience through reproductions on scholars' homepages. The latest excellent contribution to this revolution is Randall Chesnutt who has the following of his articles available as PDFs on the site for all to view:

"Perceptions of Oil in Early Judaism and the Meal Formula in Joseph and Aseneth," Journal for the Study of the Pseudepigrapha, 14 (2005) 113-32.

"George Nickelsburg's Jewish Literature Between the Bible and the Mishnah: Retrospect and Prospect," in G. W. E. Nickelsburg in Perspective: An Ongoing Dialogue of Learning, Jacob Neusner and Alan J. Avery-Peck, eds., 2 vols., Supplements to the Journal for the Study of Judaism 80. Leiden: Brill, 2003. Vol. 2, pp. 343-56

"Covenant and Cosmos in Wisdom of Solomon 10-19," in The Concept of the Covenant in the Second Temple Period, eds. Stanley E. Porter and Jacqueline C. R. de Roo. Supplements to the Journal for the Study of Judaism 71. Leiden: Brill, 2003. Pp. 223-49.

"From Text to Context: The Social Matrix of Joseph and Aseneth," in Society of Biblical Literature 1996 Seminar Papers, ed. K. H. Richards. Atlanta: Scholars Press, 1996. Pp. 285-302

"Jewish Women in the Greco-Roman Era," in Essays on Women in Earliest Christianity, vol. 1, ed. Carroll Osburn. Joplin, MO: College Press, 1993. Pp. 93-130

"Revelatory Experiences Attributed to Biblical Women in Early Jewish Literature," in 'Women Like This': New Perspectives on Jewish Women in the Greco-Roman World, ed. A.-J. Levine, Early Judaism and Its Literature 1. Atlanta: Scholars Press, 1991. Pp. 107-25.

"The Social Setting and Purpose of Joseph and Aseneth," Journal for the Study of the Pseudepigrapha 2 (1988) 21-48

Lots of material of interest there, and lots for me to add to my Aseneth Bibliography, which is in desperate need of a decent overhaul.
