Accepting Papers? No

Call For Papers: For the Annual Meetings in 2017-2018, Prophetic Texts and Their Ancient Contexts Group will be focusing on the persistence, transformation, and textualization of revelation. We will organize one invited panel each year. The aim is to ask how, why, and for whom did texts become the locus of revelation. The sessions aim at making a new contribution concerning the nature of varieties of revelation. In 2018, PTAC will have a second, joint session with invited papers in collaboration with Economics in the Biblical World.
