The Bible in the Iberian World: Fundaments of a Religious Melting Pot (EABS)

Program Unit Type: Section
Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: "This unit would like to invite proposals for papers for the joint 2018 EABS/iSBL meeting in Helsinki discussing 1) the impact of Reformation within the Iberian empires, and 2) the role of Iberian medieval and renaissance exegetes. We are particularly interested in papers that approach these topics through the underlining of disputatio, diaspora, and building of Iberian and extra-Iberian intellectual networks that were responsible for introducing new biblical interpretation within the space of the Iberian empires. The group is interested in pursuing further research that explores heterodox representations and/or discourses by opposition to traditional exegesis, namely mystic, historiographic, and literary discourses, among others. We also welcome paper proposals for an open session on the broader topic analyzed by this unit. "
