Biblia Arabica: The Bible in Arabic among Jews, Christians, and Muslims


Program Unit Type: Consultation
Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: The Biblia Arabica Consultation is planning two sessions for the AM in San Antonio. 1). A joint open session with The Qur'an and the Biblical Tradition (IQSA) Section. We invite paper proposals on "New Developments in the Study of Karaite Bible Exegesis and the Islamic and Christian Oriental contexts." Papers can focus on aspects of Karaite Bible commentaries and/or Karaite Bible translations that engage with Islamic and Christian sources, overtly or covertly, in positions of polemics or agreement. 2) An invited panel session on "New sources and Publications" in the Study of Arabic Bible translation". We will invite 4-5 persons to discuss their and others' new publications, and a responder, then follow with a general discussion. No papers are invited for this second session.
