Christian Apocrypha at 2012 SBL

Monday, February 6th, 2012

Pierluigi Piovanelli, the new chair of the SBL Christian Apocrypha section, has asked me to pass along the call for papers for this year's annual meeting:

The Christian Apocrypha Section invites submissions for at least three sessions. A special session will be devoted to "New editions and/or new translations of Christian apocryphal texts — New texts and new looks at old texts". A second session will be more specifically focused on the first volume of the Antike christliche Apokryphen in deutscher Übersetzung (to be held in common with the Jewish Christianity / Christian Judaism Section). For the third session on "New perspectives on Christian apocryphal texts", we have an open call. We especially encourage young scholars to present the results of their research.

Summer School on CA in Strasbourg

Wednesday, February 1st, 2012

Gabriella Aragione and Rémi Gounelle are hosting a summer course at the Université de Strasbourg in June on the The Latin Collection of the Acts of Apostles (Pseudo-Abdias) (see HERE).Strasbourg is a little far away for me, but I am glad to see some attention paid to this text, which, unless I am mistaken, still has not been translated into English.
