Thanks to Rod Decker’s NT Resources blog I discovered the British Library EThOS today. There are 17 dissertations listed for Galatians but only one of them is currently available for download. Two are marked as such but Kok’s is actually not. BUT never fear, I’m here. I requested the digitisation of a further six which should be available in 10 days. The service is free as long as the dissertation is already digitised or the institution has funding to do it. They are provided in pdf format and Culvert’s is quite high quality so I am looking forward to receiving the rest. The documents are limited to personal use only and cannot be shared with anyone, but given that they are free downloads I don’t see that as a hindrance – go get ’em!
