Society for Ancient Mediterranean Religions

Program Unit Type: Affiliate
Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: The Society for Ancient Mediterranean Religions seeks to explore rituals and customs practiced by a wide variety of individuals and communities, including Greek, Roman, Jewish, and Christian among others.  Our focus ranges chronologically from the Bronze Age through Late Antiquity and geographically from the Fertile Crescent to the Straits of Gibraltar.  In 2013, we plan to hold two sessions. One is an open session that seeks papers that focus on one of the following areas: (1) healing and associated practices  (2) death and funerary practices  (3) household and domestic cult. The other session will be an invited panel emphasizing Roman religion in the first half of the second century: "From Trajan to Marcion."
