Requirements for Participation

Catholic Epistles

Program Unit Type: Section
Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: We invite original research on the interpretation of the Catholic Epistles (James, 1-2 Peter, 1-3 John, and Jude) which use a variety of methodologies and/or interdisciplinary reading strategies. For 2018, we are particularly interested in receiving paper proposals that explore strategies for reading the Catholic Epistles together (either as a collection of seven letters or smaller collections such as 1–2 Peter, or 1–3 John), and/or papers that consider the reception history of the Catholic Epistles as a whole or any one of these texts individually.
