On March 9, a week earlier than the scheduled date, the student Fr. Eric John Wyckoff SDB defended his doctoral thesis:
One Sows, and Another Reaps. Interrelating Narratives in the Pentateuch and John 4.
Due to the Coronavirus emergency (COVID-19) the Faculty has decided to close the thesis defense to the public.
The commission, composed by the moderator fr. Alessandro Cavicchia, by the second moderator fr. Alessandro Coniglio, and by the two censors, fr. Frédéric Manns and prof. Ed Greenstein (Bar-Ilan University), met at Terra Sancta College in Jerusalem instead of at the SBF.
