Jesus Traditions, Gospels, and Negotiating the Roman Imperial World


Program Unit Type: Section
Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: 2013 Annual Meeting The section aims to encourage the exploration of the diverse ways (accommodation; cooption, ambivalence; self-protective protest; challenge; alternative communities and contestive practices; exposure of imperial strategies etc.) in which Jesus traditions and gospels negotiate the Roman imperial world. We welcome papers on any aspect of this topic. For one session in 2013, we especially seek papers that explore how Jesus traditions were used in the 2nd century in the context of empire. How are such traditions deployed in strategies of negotiation in the Roman Empire? What continuities or discontinuities are evident between imperial negotiations in the canonical gospels and second centuries writings?
