Textual Criticism of the Hebrew Bible

Program Unit Type: Section
Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: For the 2018 annual meeting in Denver the TCHB invites papers for one open session related to the theme of “Redactions – Variant Literary Editions – Rewritten Scripture.” Papers should engage with the question of how biblical redactions relate to or are different from variant literary editions as attested in the biblical manuscripts and/or versions or how variant literary editions distinguish themselves from rewritten scripture. There will also be one session of invited papers which continues a focus on the use of biblical quotations and allusions in Second Temple period Jewish writing for the textual criticism of the Hebrew Bible. In addition, TCHB will co-host one joint session with the Aramaic Studies program unit. This session of invited papers will examine the history of the Hebrew text of the Bible after the time of Bar Kokhba.
