Historical Jesus

Program Unit Type: Section
Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: The Historical Jesus Section is devoted to the historical exploration of Jesus of Nazareth in his first-century context, as well as methodological issues involved in this exploration. In 2014 we will have one open session for which we invite proposals on any aspect of the historical Jesus from scholars at all stages of their careers. Please use this website to submit a paper proposal. We also plan to have a second, theme session, on how the historical Jesus is appropriated in popular culture, for which the papers will be invited.
