Our MARK16 postdoc, Mina Monier, has read a paper at the Middle East regional meeting of the Catholic Biblical Federation, on the 29th of January. The title of the paper was “The ‘Gospel’ between Luke and Marcion: A Window into the Text of Luke in the Second Century.” After surveying scholarship and successive constructions of Marcion’s Evangelion, from Harnack to the recent work of Matthias Klinghardt, Monier offered his understanding of the text’s development in light of his recently published studies on Luke-Acts, within the context of early second century Rome (here and here).
His paper was warmly welcomed by the Federation and a written chapter based on this paper will be published in the edited volume that covers the proceedings of the meeting, in 2022.
It is noteworthy to state that Monier is one of the Middle Eastern scholars who are committed to promote biblical scholarship in Arabic language.

OPERAS is glad to announce that the COESO project (Collaborative Engagement on Societal Issues) kicked-off on 19/20 January 2021. The 3-year participatory research project, funded by the European Commission through a Science with and for Society grant, and supported by the OPERAS research infrastructure, will serve as a meeting point between various European communities: the social sciences and humanities community, the citizen science community, as well as the open scholarly communication community.
The OPERAS Research for Society Service will be further developed in the COESO project. http://operas-eu.org/4493; https://twitter.com/OPERASEU/status/1357348270083690504
OPERAS and PKP join forces to launch “European Community in SSH” Forum
It aims to bring together stakeholders involved in various capacities in the scholarly communication process, such as publishers, editors, publishing platform managers, or reviewers and researchers to stimulate a dialogue. The Forum is open to everyone involved or interested in scholarly communication, not only to OPERAS community members or European stakeholders. The “European Community in SSH” is moderated by EKT on behalf of OPERAS.
