The Biblical Literature Department of Brown University was one of the original two sponsors of the Lakes’ expedition to Van, Turkey, in 1937, joined by the University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology. The department sponsored both the 1938 and 1939 field seasons.

“Robert P. Casey was appointed professor of Biblical literature and history of religions, and named chairman of the department in 1934, which changed its name from Department of Biblical Literature and History to Department of Biblical Literature and History of Religions.”
