Prophets and Prophecy


This unit aims to provide an open forum for scholars to present papers on a variety of topics germane to the study of ancient Israelite prophecy and prophetic literature. All approaches to prophetic literature are welcomed, including inter alia historical, literary, rhetorical, and theological.


 We hope our unit allows scholars to present their new research achievements, present their new methods and be a platform for the most updated and fruitful discussion regarding biblical prophecy.

Syracuse 2023 Call for Papers

This coming year, 2023, we will have open sessions with papers on a broad range of topics dealing with prophetic literature. We invite submissions of papers that discuss concrete analysis for prophetic pericopes; papers that discuss fundamental prophetic phenomena and their significance in the context of a book or relationships between books; and papers that discuss different reading methods and their implications for the analysis process and the research conclusions.   


We will also hold one session devoted to the books of Isaiah and Micah- proposals discussing issues related to one of the books or to the assumed connection between them, are welcomed.
