Festschrift for Prof Elna Mouton handed over
Author: Jeremy Punt
Published: 23/10/2018

​​On Thursday afternoon 18 October 2018, a Festschrift entitled “Reading Writing Right: Essays presented in honour of Prof Elna Mouton” was handed over to her. The handing over event was held at the Faculty of Theology, and was attended mainly by contributors to the book and donors. Prof Mouton retired from her position in New Testament studies from Stellenbosch at the end of 2017. In a collection of essays, former students, colleagues and friends of Prof Elna Mouton honoured her life, career and scholarly contributions over many decades, including 17½ years at Stellenbosch University. The various essays interact with Prof Mouton’s concern for biblical hermeneutics, ethics and the interactions and connections between the two, ultimately illustrating the width and variety of interest that her work stimulated and which it interacted. The volume was edited by Proff Jeremy Punt and Marius J Nel, her two colleagues in New Testament studies at Stellenbosch University at the time of her retirement.
