Program Unit Type: Group
Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: Two sessions are scheduled for the meeting in Vienna: - an open session where papers on any topic within the range of the interests of the research group are welcome. - a session focused on “Papyri and the New Testament”. Since Vienna's Department of Papyri houses one of the largest papyrus collections of the world, a special session is devoted to insights offered by Greek, Coptic and Latin papyri and ostraca into the religious, social and political context of Christians and Jews in the first centuries CE. We welcome papers that deal with private letters, administrative and legal documents, religion and magic; as well as papyrological evidence for the development of authoritative scripture: text collections, scribes, copyists and literacy.
