Carl B. Smith II, Ph.D., of South University, Savannah presented a paper entitled “The Tree of Life in Gnostic Literature.” The material in both of these presentations highlighted preliminary findings which will be more fully developed in a forthcoming book on the Tree of Life to be published by Brill and edited by Dr. Estes.

Micah Meek, Ph.D., of South University, Montgomery presented the paper “The Development of the Concept of the Conscience from Luther to Anglican Puritanism,” which focused on the idea of the conscience in theological ideas from Martin Luther to the 16th-17th century Anglican Puritans.
