Historical Jesus


Program Unit Type: Section
Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: For the 2017 meeting we are again planning for one or two open sessions with short papers and a fair amount of time for discussion. We accept a wide range of topics, but papers must address issues relevant for the study of the HISTORICAL Jesus. Proposals are evaluated through a blind review process. Abstracts should offer a clear thesis and method, and they must provide supporting arguments showing how the paper furthers the present state of historical Jesus studies. We are also planning one session on the historical Jesus and slavery and one session on the historical Jesus and exorcism and spirit possession; in both cases papers will be mainly invited, but some offered papers may be included as well.
