Program Unit Type: Section
Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: One theme for the year 2008 is "Opponents and Enemies Within: 'Too-Christian' Jews and 'Too-Jewish' Christians." For this theme, the unit welcomes papers that explore the growing awareness of mutually exclusive Christian and Jewish identities in early Christian and early Jewish/Rabbinic sources by paying special attention to emerging heresiological discourses that seek to identify and expel unacceptable Jewish religiosity within Christian communities and unacceptable Christian religiosity within Jewish communities. Proposals are also welcome for an open session on any topic related to the goals and general subject of the program unit, and for a session that deals with Jewish Christianity/Christian Judaism and Q, to be organized together with the Q Section.
