Sr. Fides Strenkov√° CJ defends her Thesis

On the 18 June 2012 long years of hard work came to an end. Sr. Fides Strenková has chosen a rather difficult topic for her thesis: “Devastata è Ninive! Esegesi e contesto di Na 3,1-7” (Ninive is devastated! Exegesis and Context of Nah 3,1-7). The aim of the research was to investigate one of the crucial moments in the history of Israel, namely the fall of the Assyrian Empire, and his interpretation in the Book of the Prophet Nahum.
Prof. Peter Dubovský SJ (Pontifical Biblical Institute), the tutor of the thesis, and Prof. Michael Maier (Pontifical Gregorian University) asked critical questions. With competence and great personal engagement she answered all the questions to the contentment of the Professors. In her speech at the end, she thanked all who helped her on the long way to finish this work.
