Apostolic Fathers and Related Early Christian Literature

Program Unit Type: Section
Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: 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 topics through historical, literary, theological, rhetorical, or socio-cultural lenses. Beyond this particular focus, the program unit will also consider other papers that critically examine other topics in early Christian text(s) up to the year 250 (thus including but not being limited to the so-called “Apostolic Fathers”).
