Edwards (University of Kent); Martha Driver (Pace University, New York); Erik Kooper (Universiteit Utrecht); William Marx (University of Wales; Trinity St David, Lampeter); Kari Anne Rand (Universitetet i Oslo); John Thompson (Queen’s University, Belfast); and Ronald Waldron (Emeritus, King’s College London).
