Healthcare and Disability in the Ancient World


Program Unit Type: Section
Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: The unit seeks to foster scholarship related to disability in all fields of biblical studies. Major areas of concern include medical history of the Ancient Near East and Greco-Roman worlds; the religious, legal, and cultural status of people with disabilities in the biblical and formative Jewish and Christian periods; the representation of disability in biblical and cognate texts, biblical theology of the same, and disability in the history of biblical interpretation. Given our 2019 location in Rome, we are particularly interested in papers that engage Roman medicine; Jewish and Christian medical beliefs or practices on the Italian peninsula or in dialogue with Greco-Roman medical thought; and the archaeology and history of disability in Roman religion and culture.
