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 Slavic texts on sacred themes and characters as it is laid out in the unit’s description. In addition, an open-call joint session with the program unit, “Hellenistic Judaism,” will be dedicated to the dissemination of popular Hellenistic texts in the Slavic world, such as the “Alexander Romance.” Cyril-Constantine arrived in Rome with his brother Methodius in 868 CE. He died there a year later, and was buried in the city, because the pope of that time, Adrian II, had embraced their mission to the Slavic peoples and endorsed the use of Slavic languages in Christian worship. In honour of Cyril, Methodius, and their mission, we welcome papers for a joint session with “Apocalyptic Literature” on biblical interpretations historically specific to Slavic cultures, including apocalyptic, apocryphal, and dogmatic literature.
