      "Bible in the Eastern and Oriental Orthodox Traditions"
      Society of Biblical Literature (SBL)
      November 17-20, 2007
      San Diego, CA


      The SBL consultation unit, "Bible in the Eastern and Oriental
      Orthodox Traditions," invites proposals of papers for the 2007 annual
      meeting of the Society. The unit's focus area of discussion for this
      year's annual meeting is: "Exegesis and Hermeneutics in the Churches
      of the East—The First Five Centuries."

      The committee invites the presentation of papers from a variety of
      approaches and methodologies to discuss biblical hermeneutics and
      exegesis developed and practiced in the Eastern and Oriental Orthodox
      churches during the first five centuries. Critical examination of the
      writings of the churches in the East, preserved in the Arabic,
      Aramaic, Armenian, Coptic, Georgian, Syriac and other languages, will
      help develop a critical understanding of the biblical scholarship in
      these Christian communities during the first five centuries.

      The "Bible in the Eastern and Oriental Orthodox Traditions" is a
      consultation unit within the SBL which offers a forum for biblical
      professors and scholars from the Eastern and Oriental Orthodox
      traditions (including Aramaic, Syriac, Armenian, Arabic, Georgian,
      Coptic, among others) to engage in critical study of the role of the
      Bible in eastern Christianity, past and present. A particular aim of
      this section will be to engage participating scholars in dealing with
      issues raised by contemporary and critical biblical scholarship. The
      committee invites presentation and discussion of papers from a
      variety of approaches and methodologies, including (but not limited
      to) theological, historiographic, philological, and literary studies.
