Requirements for Participation

Formation of Luke and Acts

Program Unit Type: Section
Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: The Formation of Luke-Acts Section is interested in the relationship between Luke-Acts and the use of the Septuagint, the Pauline letters, and the probable influence upon Luke-Acts due to Greco-Roman rhetorical education and the Progymnasmata. We are interested in all the narrative elements and features of the text as well as the possible factors that could have contributed to its formation and composition. We intend to offer two sessions. One session will be by invitation only and devoted to the effect of Q on the formation of the third gospel. Harry Fleddermann's new book on Q will be discussed. Another session will be open with a call for papers relative to the aforementioned interests.
