Reading/Seminar Course on the Marys, anyone?

Anyone in and around the tri-state area interested in a reading and discussion seminar course on the Marys in Christian (and Jewish and Islamic) tradition(s)in the fall of 2008? I've just started having a conversation about it (in response to a request to do the course) so now is the time to get in on the ground level.

Presently, I propose that we would read texts and books over the summer so as to be prepared to discuss them in the fall. These books and topics have yet to be identified so feel free to make suggestions.

We would then meet once a month 4x (Sept-Dec) on a Thursday evening over dinner from 6-7pm and then as a seminar from 7-8pm at the seminary. Since this is a reading/seminar class offered for one credit, one short written assignment is required as the basis for the monthly seminar discussion.

Send me an email if you are interested and want more details: good@gts.edu

Thanks!
