Steve Reece, St. Olaf College Professor of the Classics, is Wayne’s guest.
He is the author of a book about the rituals of ancient Greek hospitality (The Stranger’s Welcome: Oral Theory and the Aesthetics of the Homeric Hospitality Scene, University of Michigan Press) and a book on early Greek etymology (Homer’s Winged Words: Junctural Metanalysis in Homer in the Light of Oral-Formulaic Theory, E.J. Brill Press), for which he received a Woodrow Wilson Fellowship. His latest book, Paul’s Large Letters: Paul’s Autographic Subscription in the Light of Ancient Epistolary Conventions, has just been published by Bloomsbury T&T Clark.
Reece is engaged in a long-term project on allusions to classical literature in Luke-Acts and the letters of Paul.
