Call For Papers:

For the final year of our initial three year run, we will be sponsoring two sessions. We are unable to accept new paper proposals this year, but if anyone is interested in participating in this Program Unit in the future, or if you would like more information, please contact the program unit chairs.

Session 1: Paul and the Trinity

This session will investigate Paul's thought on God/the Father, Christ/the Son, and the Holy Spirit. We are interested in approaching this topic from a variety of angles: Does Paul have a Trinitarian theology (in any sense of that word)? How have new approaches to Pauline studies allowed us to recognize different dimensions of Paul's use of Trinitarian categories? How did Paul's theology influence later Trinitarian speculation? In line with the goals of this program unit, we are especially concerned to bring scholars from different disciplines into conversation with each other. This session will include specialists in Paul as well as experts in early Trinitarian thought and Patristic - era exegesis.

Session 2: The Old Testament and the Trinity

We will pursue this topic by investigating views of God present in the Old Testament and in Jewish monotheism. In line with the goals of this program unit, we are interested in bringing scholars from different disciplines into conversation with each other. This session will include specialists in the Hebrew Scriptures, early Trinitarian thought, and Patristic-era exegesis.
