Call For Papers: The Pseudepigrapha Section focuses on three distinct areas for the 2021 Annual Meeting of the SBL. On the occasion of the recent critical edition and German translation of short chronographic Paleia (S. Fahl, D. Fahl, Die Kurze Chronographische Paleja [Gütersloh, 2019]), we solicit proposals which examine the impact of these Slavonic literary traditions on the study of the Pseudepigrapha. For a second thematic session, we welcome proposals that concern the Christian ownership and transmission of Jewish texts. For a third planned session, the Pseudepigrapha Section will feature a conversation with invited panelists on issues that emerge from Liv Ingeborg Lied, Invisible Manuscripts: Textual Scholarship and the Survival of 2 Baruch (Mohr Siebeck, 2021). Proposals that concern other issues related to the study of the Pseudepigrapha are also welcome for an open session.
