Some papers will be invited for this session, but proposals on the topic are also welcome. One session will focus on the Book of Ben Sira with its theology and textual complexity; this year’s core theme of the Ben Sira session will be on the Praise of the Ancestors (Sir 44-50), but any other inspiring proposal will be welcome.
