Book of Daniel

Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: The Book of Daniel Section will offer two sessions at the 2014 Annual Meeting in San Diego. One session will be an open session on the topic of holiness, temple, and priesthood in Daniel (Hebrew and/or Greek versions). The second session will consist of invited papers on a separate topic. For the open session, the steering committee solicits proposals that deal with any of part of holiness, temple, and priesthood in Daniel. Proposals may utilize various analytical approaches—tradition-historical, ideological, sociological, etc.—for the purpose of illuminating the conceptual world of Daniel’s writers and intended audience. The best proposals will offer a promising theoretical framework and a clear (if provisional) thesis regarding the depiction or function of these things in Daniel. Those who are proposing a paper for the first time to SBL should send a draft of the paper to Amy Merrill Willis.
