6/16 Online International Symposium: Scroll Approches to the Hebrew Bible
Faculty of Theology and Religious Studies KU Leuven
This symposium will offer an exploratory conversation on the opportunities (and possible pitfalls) of enriching the study of the Hebrew Bible through more focused attention on ancient practices of creating and using scrolls. The interconnection of relatively recent theoretical movements (e.g., New Philology, sociological study of bibliography and New Materialism) and continuing analysis and collection of material evidence from ancient scrolls (especially from Egypt and the Dead Sea Caves) offers an opportunity to add precision to models for the formation and reception of (what would become) biblical texts by attending to practices surrounding their likely original material form—as parts of scrolls. Registration is free of charge but mandatory.The deadline for registration is Monday 14 June 2021.

6/30 Call for Papers Deadline
The Pontifical Biblical Commission together with the Institute of Biblical Studies at The John Paul II Catholic University of Lublin organize a conference “Biblical Anthropology - a Message for Contemporary Man”.

Due to pandemic restrictions, the conference will be held on the Internet, via the Zoom platform.

Taking as a point of departure the latest document of the Pontifical Biblical Commission What is man? A Journey through Biblical Anthropology we want to reflect on the topics related to biblical anthropology and their importance for modern man. During the conference, the document of the Pontifical Biblical Commission will be discussed, considering its origins, character, purpose and reception in the Church. The conference will also focus on important topics of biblical anthropology such as: the meaning of God’s image in man, the biblical vision of family, love and sexuality, the bodily and spiritual dimension of human nature, humanity’s relationship to the created world, freedom and determinism, and the Christological model of human nature. We will be looking for answers to the question of how to communicate the message of biblical anthropology to contemporary people, entering into an interdisciplinary dialogue with modern science without losing the specificity of the biblical message. A special session will be devoted to the anthropology of St. Paul. Conference papers will be published in a special volume of The Biblical Annals.
