Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: There will be three sessions in 2020.1) a joint session with the Historical Paul group on Paul and the Pharisees; 2) a joint status quaestionis session with the Disputed Pauline and Paul and Politics group; 3) an open session dedicated to the topic 'Paul and the Rabbis'. For the latter we accept papers on ideas found in Paul’s letters and which resurface in rabbinic literature, as well as on Pauline ideas that the rabbis reject/argue against explicitly or implicitly.
