Requirements for Participation

Christian Apocrypha

Program Unit Type: Section
Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: The Christian Apocrypha section will run four sessions in 2014. The first session will be a joint session with the Gospel of Luke section in memory of François Bovon and his great contributions to both of these fields; participation is by invitation. The second session will be a panel discussion on the challenges and benefits of presenting the Christian Apocrypha to non-scholarly audiences; participation is by invitation. The third session will be devoted to the uncertain boundaries between the categories of “apocryphal” and “canonical” texts, traditions, and ideas; although some presenters may be invited, we welcome paper proposals on any aspect of this topic. The fourth session will be an open call, and we will welcome papers on any topic within the study of the Christian Apocrypha.
