Wisdom and Apocalypticism


Program Unit Type: Section
Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: The Wisdom and Apocalypticism section is planning three sessions for the 2016 meeting. The first is a joint session with the Economics of the Biblical World section. This will be an invited session on sapiential and apocalyptic texts in relation to the theme of economics, entitled “Financial Instruction and Poverty in Wisdom and Apocalypticism.” The second will be an invited session entitled “Philo vis-à-vis Wisdom and Apocalypticism” that will explore topics in Philo that resonate with the sapiential and apocalyptic traditions. Our third session is open. For this session we welcome papers on any topic relating to wisdom and/or apocalypticism, but we encourage papers that engage Maccabean literature and/or texts in which the theme of martyrdom is prominent.
