  3. SBL – Art & Religions of Antiquity–Conference & Call for Papers

    For the 2017 SBL Annual Meeting in Boston (Nov. 18-21), the Art and Religions of Antiquity Program Unit is offering three paper sessions organized by the following themes. 1) Art and Religion of the Greece and the Aegean Region: For this session we seek papers that address the role of art and material culture as it relates to the Greek East/Aegean region, broadly construed, in antiquity or late antiquity. Presentations that emphasize regionally distinctive monuments, artifacts, of different mediums, structures, manuscripts, and rituals are most welcome, along with recently discovered materials. 2) Ritual and Corpses: For this session, we seek papers that address art and material culture as it relates to death, the body, and related rituals broadly construed. Papers that address necromancy, necrology as well as sarcophagus imagery, relics and reliquary devotion, and funerary rituals are most welcome. 3) Religion Underground: For this session, we seek papers that address art and material culture as it relates to the catacombs and funerary environments. Papers that address imagery in such a setting, including frescoes, sculpted sarcophagi, glass, inscriptions, graffiti, funerary and other objects are desired. Papers that treat rituals that occur in such a funerary environment are also encouraged.

    For further information, please Dr. Lee Jefferson ().
