Social memory research has complicated the relationship between past and present because it is a relationship which finds expression in memorial acts such as storytelling and text-production. This relationship has emerged as a dialectic in which "past" and "present" are mutually constitutive and implicating. The resultant complication directly affects the procedures and products of "historical Jesus" research, which depends particularly on the assumption that we can cleanly separate "authentic" from "inauthentic" traditions. In Structuring Early Christian Memory Rafael Rodriguez analyzes the problems that arise from this assumption and proposes a "historical Jesus" program that is more sensitive to the entanglement of past and present.

Dr Rafael Rodriguez (Johnson University, USA)

Rafael Rodriguez, assistant professor of New Testament (Johnson Bible College; Knoxville, TN), received his Ph.D. from the University of Sheffield in 2008 and is currently researching Christian origins and the so-called 'parting of the ways.'

This study is a welcome addition to historical Jesus studies and provides a fresh perspective that deserves careful attention.--Sanford Lakoff
