Requirements for Participation

Wisdom and Apocalypticism


Program Unit Type: Section
Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: The Wisdom and Apocalypticism section is planning three sessions for the 2013 Annual Meeting, all focus on various facets of the theme of paideia. We will have an open session focusing on the personification of Wisdom, Torah or Logos as a pedagogical technique in early Jewish and Christian texts. For an open, joint session with the Corpus Hellenisticum Novi Testamenti Section, we are soliciting papers that address paideia in early Jewish and early Christian texts with an eschatological orientation, against the background of instructional literature or other evidence pertaining to education in the broader Hellenistic context. We will also have an invited session on the use of Greek paideia in late antiquity, informed by the work of Raffaella Cribiore.
