For those who have not heard (I got this one from one of my profs, actually), Judith Weingarten's book The Chronicle of Zenobia: The Rebel Queen
has recently been released. It is apparently the first of three historical fiction books on Zenobia. Too bad it's fiction, so I can't use it for my paper! ;-)
Also, yesterday, Elaine Pagels had an Op-Ed piece on the Gospel of Judas
Granted, the National Geographic site was exciting, but I'm surprised it's caused all this hullabaloo now
that even Borders is doing an entire table on it with books for 30% off.
