Call For Papers: The steering committee of the 'Bible in the Eastern and Oriental Orthodox Traditions' unit invites scholars to submit proposals for papers to be read at the unit’s sessions in the SBL International meeting in Buenos Aires, Argentina, July 20-24, 2015. This year's theme of our unit is the pre-Byzentine commentaries of the Orthodox Churches of the East on the letters of Paul, including the apocryphal letters attributed to the Apostle. Proposals for any critical study of the manuscripts, text, hermeneutics and history of the commentaries in the Arabic, Armenian, Coptic, Ethiopian, Greek and Syriac languages are welcome. The unit welcomes also studies of issues raised in these commentaries which are of relevance to contemporary and critical biblical scholarship.
