Greek Bible

Program Unit Type: Section
Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: The Greek Bible section provides a forum for papers on reception history, translation theory, manuscript traditions, linguistic issues, biblical theology, and hermeneutics that involve the use of the Greek versions in later writings. For the 2011 meeting in San Francisco, the section invites proposals for two sessions.

1) A themed session entitled, “Greek Isaiah in Later Jewish and Christian Writings.” This program will include papers on the exegesis of the Greek text of Isaiah by Jewish and Christian authors prior to 300 CE.

2) An open session: For this program, we invite proposals dealing with any aspect of the reception of the Greek Bible. All papers accepted must demonstrate the use of the Greek text in distinction from the Hebrew Bible.
