Christian Theology and the Bible

Program Unit Type: Section
Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: The Christian Theology and Bible Section invites papers on Allegorical Interpretation (and its Critics). We welcome proposals for papers focused on historical, systematic, or contemporary understandings of allegorical reading of Scripture, and/or on allegorical interpretations themselves, and/or on critiques of such readings. This session will be one of two on Allegorical Readings and Readers and Their Critics, and is a continuation of our multi-year project on the "senses" of Scripture in ancient and contemporary contexts. Papers focusing on particular readings, texts, readers, and/or their critics are welcome.
