Professor Martin Hengel R.I.P.

The Telegraph has an obituary of Professor Martin Hengel who died on July 2, 2009.

His magnum opus Judaism and Hellenism (1969) broke new ground and changed the course of New Testament studies by demonstrating that the Judaism out of which Christianity evolved was one deeply influenced by Hellenism.

German newspapers also contained obits.
