Bible in the Eastern and Oriental Orthodox Traditions CFP

The steering committee of the "Bible in the Eastern and Oriental Orthodox Traditions" is happy to announce the "Call for Papers" for its session in the International Conference of the Society of Biblical Literature (SBL), 2010. The meeting will take place in Tartu, Estonia, July 25-29, 2010.

The theme chosen for the 2010 International Conference is: "The Antiochian School of Biblical Exegesis." Scholars are invited to submit proposals for papers to explore the various aspects of Biblical exegesis and hermeneutics developed and promoted in the churches of the Antiochian Patrimony. The steering committee of the unit especially encourages the submission of proposals for papers that explore and discuss the insights into contemporary biblical exegesis and scholarship that the distinct tradition of biblical interpretation of the school of Antioch may provide. Papers that explore the influence of the Antiochian school on later and other traditions of biblical exegesis will also be considered.

To submit a proposal please visit the following link on the Society's website:

As in the previous conferences, the papers presented at this conference will be published in a proceedings volume. We are happy to announce the puiblication of the proceedings of our first conference in San Diego (2007) titled, Exegesis and Hermeneuticsa in the Church of the East (New York: Peter Lang, 2008). The proceedings of the conference in Boston (2008), The Old Testament as Authoritative Scripture in the Early Churches of the East has been submitted for publication, and should be available by November, 2009.
