7/25-7/27 Colloquium Biblicum Lovaniense LXVII, 2018 (President: Pierre Van Hecke, Leuven) 
For many centuries, the Song of Songs was by far one of the most commented biblical books, especially taking into consideration its limited length. After a period of diminished interest, recent scholarship is rediscovering the book. The present colloquium aims at bringing together the leading voices in contemporary Songs scholarship and by fostering the dialogue between them, at inaugurating a new phase in the research.
