Jeremy Hultin on You Tube: Obscene Speech in Early Christianity

After reviewing his excellent book, I announced that Jeremy Hultin of Yale Divinity would be entertaining questions about it in a short video. Jeremy has uploaded the video to you tube for all to enjoy. I’ll have to think more about the register of the phrase “brood of vipers”, and dig up an old article by Dick Rohrbaugh who believes it was more crass than Jeremy claims. Thanks to Jeremy for a fun and helpful discussion!
