About SBL

The Society of Biblical Literature is the oldest and largest international scholarly membership organization in the field of biblical studies. Founded in 1880, the Society has grown to over 8,500 international members including teachers, students, religious leaders and individuals from all walks of life who share a mutual interest in the critical investigation of the Bible.
Symposium
Symposium Series presents essay-length studies, contributed by various scholars, that address a particular topic related to the biblical literature and/or its cultural environment. The aim of the series is to provide for the publication of studies that have emerged from collaborative work, especially within the SBL’s own program units, and that are best published together rather than separately.
