Dr. Mari Mamyan and Prof. em. Dr. Jan Bremmer are participating in the Beyond Canon_ project as research fellows. Both of them are working on apocryphal texts – early Christian writings that were not included in the New Testament when it was canonized in the fourth century, but nevertheless played an important role in forming Early Christianity. As a Junior Fellow and a Senior Fellow, a female and a male researcher, with their Armenian and Dutch origins, Dr. Mamyan and Prof. Dr. Bremmer illustrate the diversity of the Beyond Canon_ group – and thus form an ideal duo for an interview. Stephanie Hallinger is the academic coordinator of the Centre for Advanded Studies Beyond Canon_ and spoke with them about their research projects.
