Call for Papers
"Bible in the Eastern and Oriental Orthodox Traditions"
Society of Biblical Literature
The committee for the program unit "Bible in the Eastern and Oriental Orthodox Traditions" of the Society of Biblical Literature (SBL) is happy to announce the Call for Papers for the 2010 International Conference in Tartu, Estonia.
The program unit's theme for this conference is "The Antiochian School of Biblical Exegesis." Scholars are invited to submit proposals for papers to explore the various aspects of biblical exegesis and hermeneutics developed and promoted in the churches of the Antiochian Patrimony. The steering committee of the unit especially encourages the submission of proposals for papers that explore and discuss the insights into contemporary biblical exegesis and scholarship that the distinct tradition of biblical interpretation of the school of Antioch may provide. Papers that explore the influence of the Antiochian school on later and other traditions of biblical exegesis will also be considered.
All are welcome to propsoe abstracts for papers to participate in this unit's session. SBL members can submit their proposals online by accessing the SBL website (see link below) and uploading their proposal. Please make sure to click the "Bible in the Eastern and Oriental Orthodox Traditions" link on the list of participating Program Units.
