Biblical Characters in Three Traditions (Judaism, Christianity, Islam)

Program Unit Type: Seminar
Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: Moses, the biblical figure, has long been researched from different theological, historical, archaeological, literary, egyptological, apocryphal, and linguistic perspectives. These approaches only scratch the surface of how scholars have responded to this figure. Recent approaches to Moses in Jewish, Christian, Muslim, and literary investigations are invited. No more than 20 abstracts will be accepted for this seminar in Buenos Aires. Abstracts mirroring most recent approaches will be considered first. We seek discussion concerning a Moses to be understood in the 21st Century.
