Requirements for Participation

Disputed Paulines

Program Unit Type: Section
Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: The Disputed Paulines Section focuses on those letters of the Pauline Corpus that many argue are not genuinely or immediately authored by Paul, in hope that careful study will help us better understand both these documents and early Christianity more broadly. The section invites papers exploring historical, literary (including rhetorical), and theological matters that bear upon the interpretation of these letters. For 2014, the section will also sponsor a joint session with the African Biblical Hermeneutics Section on the theme, "African Readings of the Disputed Pauline Letters." Especially welcome would be papers interpreting one or more of the Disputed Paulines (or a discreet section thereof) in relation to African culture and spirituality, post-colonial interpretation, or other related approaches to the text.
