Wisdom and Apocalypticism in Early Judaism and Early Christianity


Program Unit Type: Section
Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: The Wisdom and Apocalypticism Section is planning one open session for the 2014 Annual Meeting, for which we are soliciting papers on concepts of time and history in texts of early Judaism, with possible reference to comparative Greek or Roman material. Preference will be given to papers that go beyond calendar issues to consider the conceptualization of time or history in sapiential or apocalyptic writings. We are also planning an invited session on “Teachers, Torah and Paideia in Early Judaism” and two joint sessions, one invited session with the Nag Hammadi Section and the other an open session with the Johannine Literature Section on “Apocalyptic and the Johannine Gospel.”
