The “Apostolic Fathers and Related Early Christian Literature” unit of the Society of Biblical Literature is inviting paper proposals for sessions during the 20-24 July, 2015 international meetings to be held in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
This year we especially invite papers concerning Jewish-Christian relations, interactions, and identity-formation within the Apostolic Fathers and related literature. Papers may address these Jewish-Christian topics through historical, literary, theological, rhetorical, or socio-cultural lenses. Beyond this particular focus, and as space permits, the program unit will also consider other papers that critically examine other topics in the so-called “Apostolic Fathers” (and related early Christian literature). Those submitting proposals must be current members of the SBL, and the call for papers closes February 25. For more details, please see:
