Associate Professor Michael Peppard Interview with Public Radio International (PRI)

Associate Professor Michael Peppard was interviewed for PRI “The World” on Friday, January 22nd, for the story “ISIS wants to erase the Middle East’s Christian history — and make a few bucks along the way.” Text and audio for the interview can be found below. Professor Peppard also had his article,”Is this the Oldest Image of the Virgin Mary?” published in yesterday’s New York Times Sunday Review Section. It’s a version of one of the arguments from his new book, The World’s Oldest Church (Yale 2016).
