Ritual in the Biblical World


Program Unit Type: Section
Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: For our first session, papers are invited that explore water in rituals in the biblical world. How is water used? Where and how does it come into play in a given rite? What kinds of symbolic value does it carry in these rituals? And what sense might we make of this use, if any? Our second session is open to all proposals dealing with rituals in the biblical world. We are particularly interested in papers that employ a methodological or theoretical framework to analyze, explain, or defamiliarize these rituals or ritual contexts.
