Rethinking Biblical Written Tradition through Slavonic Interpretations

Program Unit Type: Section
Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: We are calling for presentations on all traditions and aspects of Middle Age Slavonic sacred texts. This year we will focus on the study of North Slavic commentaries on biblical themes. The second session will focus on the current state of digitization of Slavonic manuscripts and on the publication of the critical editions of Slavonic sacred literature. Studies on manuscript traditions, linguistic analysis, and works on lexicographical projects are welcome. The third session will include proposals on Nordic and Baltic biblical scholarship on the Slavonic readings of the Bible. We also want to invite all biblical scholars from the Balkan and Slavic lands to present their work in our section. In recognition of the work on Dead Sea Scrolls by our Finnish hosts, we invite papers 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),” “Hellenistic Judaism (ISBL),” and “Slavonic Apocrypha” (EABS).
