Call For Papers: In Deuterocanonical and Cognate Literature the well known figures of Moses, Aaron, Eleazar, Hannah, Joschija, Ezra, albeit not always, and Nehemiah play an ever increasing role. But how are these figures used and interpreted? And, if these leaders are different from their elder examples, how do they differ? And who are the new emerging leaders? And for all of these figures: what kind of leadership do they exude? and how do they establish their authority?
