Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: We welcome papers on any aspect of Hellenistic Judaism including proposals on Hellenistic Jewish literature and its reception history. This year we are happy to invite presentations for two joint sessions which we will hold with the research unit “Hellenistic Judaism (EABS).” One session is on “Food and Eating in Hellenistic Judaism,” and the other on Hanukkah, including its reception and present meaning and various aspects of “The Hanukkah Complex.” In recognition of the work on Dead Sea Scrolls by our Finnish hosts, we invite papers for a session on the topic “Research on Apocalyptic, Apocryphal, and Second Temple Literature in the Nordic, Baltic, and North Slavic Lands,” to be held jointly with the program units “Apocalyptic Literature (ISBL),” “Rethinking Biblical Written Tradition through Slavonic Interpretations (ISBL),” and “Slavonic Apocrypha” (EABS).
