Larry Hurtado on Peer Review in Biblical Scholarship

October 21, 2013

Over at Larry Hurtado’s blog, there is a decent little primer on peer review with specific focus on how peer review works in a field of the humanities such as Biblical studies. This is helpful in that (1) comes from someone with the expertise and reputation that Hurtado possesses, and (2) there are recent (and some might say, pernicious) attempts to subvert the peer review process by making outrageous and untenable claims like “the Romans invented Jesus.” I’m just spitballin’ here, but I’m not sure such a grandiose claim would pass the “peer review sniff test.”
