Call For Papers: For the 2020 Annual Meeting, the Pauline Epistles Section is planning two open-call sessions, for which we invite paper proposals on any topic that falls under the broad remit of our Section description. In addition, we are planning two jointly-sponsored, invited panel sessions: one with Pauline Theology on the problem of doing history and doing theology in the study of Paul, and another with Biblical Exegesis from Eastern Orthodox Perspectives on the eikon theou in Paul and his interpreters.
