Religious World of Late Antiquity


Program Unit Type: Section
Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: For 2017, the Religious World of Late Antiquity Program Unit is planning four sessions. The first, co-sponsored with Social History of Formative Christianity and Judaism, will be a pre-arranged session on David Frankfurter’s book, Christianizing Egypt: Syncretism and Local Worlds (forthcoming from Princeton University Press). The second session will be a pre-arranged panel on Todd Berzon’s recently published, Classifying Christians: Ethnography, Heresiology, and the Limits of Knowledge in Late Antiquity (University of California Press, 2016). The third session, also pre-arranged, will focus on the post-human. The panel will discuss ideas of nature, geology, topography, animals, and sound. The final panel is a completely open call; we invite proposals on any aspect of the religious world of late antiquity. We particularly encourage graduate students to apply for this final session.
