His stay has gone by quickly, but he has accomplished much, setting up all the chapters to his dissertation and completely writing two of them using a classic commentary style (Thomas, Hippolytus and the Naassenes; Thomas and Clement of Alexandria). He is writing in Italian since this is a requirement for graduation from the University of Turino. Once he finishes the book, he plans to translate it into English immediately with an eye on submitting it for publication.
So I recommend watching for his name and his book in the next couple of years. His work will be a very valuable contribution to the studies of the Gospel of Thomas.
I have thoroughly enjoying our time together, and I wish him the best in travel back to Italy, and continued success writing.
