2020 Grants from the CBA Awarded



At the recommendation of the Committee on Research Support, the Catholic Biblical Association of America is awarding a total of $11,065 to two CBA members under a new inititative, Grants from the CBA. The program was established this year to provide financial assistance to Full and Associate Members of the Association for specific projects that promote Biblical scholarship.

The first two projects to be sponsored under the Grants from the CBA program are:

  • $1,825 to Robert J. Karris, O.F.M., Emeritus, St. Bonaventure University, for “An Annotated Translation of Cardinal Hugh of St. Cher’s Commentary on Luke 16:19-31 (The Parable of the Rich Man and Lazarus),” – a translation of Cardinal Hugh of St. Cher’s Commentary on Luke 16:19-31 with Introduction, Annotations, and Afterword.
  • $9,240 to Susanne Scholz, Perkins School of Theology, for “The Geopolitics of Archeology in the Holy Land: Four Case Studies,” – an investigation of four archaeological sites in Israel/Palestine (Tel Shiloh, the City of David, Tel Rumeida/Hebron, Tel Balata/Shechem).

The Association congratulates the recipients and wish them well in completing their project. A debt of gratitude is owed to Gregory E. Sterling, Chair and the members of the CBA Committee on Research Support (Joachim Eck, Maria Pascuzzi, Anathea Portier-Young, Jean-François Racine, and Pauline Viviano) for their work on developing criteria, then reviewing the applications and making its recommendations.
