Second Corinthians: Pauline Theology in the Making

Program Unit Type: Seminar
Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: The Second Corinthians: Pauline Theology in the Making Seminar will hold two sessions at the 2016 meeting. (1) A joint session with Paul within Judaism composed of invited papers on the theological issues of, or in the composition of 2 Corinthians, starting from the hypothesis that Paul remained within and practiced Judaism; (2) A session on sections of, or on the whole of, 2 Corinthians 11 along the lines of the goals of the seminar, for which there is an open call for papers. We are especially interested in how the conceptions of human achievements are evaluated. Other themes of interest include: Paul's bodily versus epistolary presence; the biblical imagery employed in 2 Cor 11; Paul’s conceptions of his 'opponents'; chapter 11 and its genre, as well as its historical roots. The complete texts of the accepted papers are due by October 31, 2016.
