Call for conference papers, EABS, Lincoln, July 26th-30th 2009

The Biblical World and its Reception

W. John Lyons (


This seminar aims to provide a forum in which participants can engage in the theoretical issues pertaining to the reception of the 'biblical world' throughout the last 2500 years and/or present specific examples of how biblical and chronologically related texts have been appropriated within later cultural, political and artistic contexts. Insights drawn from a wide range of range of disciplines are encouraged and the reception history of any relevant text from the biblical period will be considered suitable material for presentation and discussion.

Agenda for 2009

Following its successful first meeting in Lisbon in 2008, the seminar will be looking to organise two sessions in Lincoln 2009. The first session will consist of invited papers on the reception history of the Dead Sea Scrolls. The second session will be open - paper proposals should be submitted to the Chair - and will also include a closing discussion about the direction of the programme and possible future topics. Audience participation on the day is warmly invited, and short papers will be presented with an equivalent time provided for discussion.
