Requirements for Participation

Jewish Christianity / Christian Judaism

Program Unit Type: Section
Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: Sessions have been partially pre-planned, with some invited speakers, on (1) the Aramaic base of earliest Christianity and (2) James the Just and the Jerusalem community (jointly held with Construction of Christian Identities). Further proposals are particularly welcomed that complement the subjects of these sessions and might be included in them, but a third session is potentially open to any topic relative to Jewish Christianity. The session on the Aramaic base of earliest Christianity will explore not only specific Aramaic vocabulary and meanings witnessed for the early community but also the larger linguistic and methodological issue of how to isolate the relevant Aramaic dialect.
