Requirements for Participation

Manuscripts from Eastern Christian Traditions

Program Unit Type: Workshop
Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: For the 2013 meeting in Baltimore, we invite papers that deal with manuscript studies in the languages and traditions of the Christian east, especially presentations of instructive and practical value for both students and scholars. We anticipate at least two sessions, for one of which we invite papers that focus on Syriac manuscript studies for a joint session organized with the SBL unit "Syriac Literature and Interpretations of Sacred Texts." Papers on manuscripts of other languages and traditions (Arabic, Armenian, Christian Palestinian Aramaic, Coptic, Ge`ez, Georgian, Persian, Sogdian) are warmly welcomed for the other session.
