This week’s Paul Post of the Week is Nijay Gupta’s insightful interview with Peter Head. The focus of Nijay’s interview is Dr. Head’s work on ancient letter carriers, a topic which interests me greatly. Nijay poses a number of questions to Dr. Head such as what texts he is examining, the possible implications of his research, and how his work compares to that of E. Randolph Richards (whose book I recommend). Nijay’s interview is informative for anyone interested in Dr. Head’s work. For those interested, I interacted with Head’s article “Named Letter Carries among the Oxyrhynchus Papyri” (JSNT 2009) in a prior post concerning Paul’s envoys and letter carriers.
