Bible and Visual Culture

Program Unit Type: Section
Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: There will be two sessions. One will focus on British art. In keeping with the seminar’s overall aim of exploring biblical works of art in the venue where the SBL takes place, we particularly encourage topics that relate to British art from any century, and especially paintings by Scottish artists and the Pre-Raphaelites. Papers may be of a general nature or they may focus specifically on an individual painting, with preference given to paintings in the National Gallery of Scotland ( and other British galleries. The second will be an open session. Papers on sculpture, stained glass, book illustration, film and popular culture are encouraged.
