Synoptic Gospels

Program Unit Type: Section
Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: Study of the Synoptic Gospels is critical for a literate understanding of religious discussions and imperatives in today's world. This year, we especially welcome Latin-American approaches to the Gospels and their interpretation. Three sessions will be organized, and proposals are welcome for each one of them. The themes of the sessions are: 1. Orality, Memory and Literacy in the formation process of the Synoptic Gospels. Since there is no special session on Q, we invite proposals in two categories: one specializing in Q and the other on the Synoptic Gospels. 2. The Synoptic Problem Reconsidered. Intertextual relations between the Gospel of John and the Synoptic Gospels are especially welcome. 3. Special Themes on the Synoptic Gospels. All topics are welcome. Please indicate in your proposal which session your paper would fit best.
