The exodus to Scotland continues

Via Novum Testamentum, I’ve just heard that yet another leading scholar will be abandoning England for Scotland: Markus Bockmuehl, currently Professor of Biblical and Early Christian Studies at the University of Cambridge, will be joining the Divinity School at the University of St Andrews.

As far as theological studies are concerned, Scotland is definitely the place to be these days. (And there’s a nice poll about this at Theologoumenon, in which Edinburgh, Aberdeen and St Andrews are all currently miles ahead of Oxford.)

I've heard that Australia's own Peter Harrison will soon be taking up a post at Oxford.

I didn't know that. Harrison is a brilliant scholar -- so this will be a great loss for Australia, but a great gain for Oxford!
