Warsaw 2019 Call for Papers
In order to study the translatability of divine names, the workshop is organised around three axes. For this reason, scholars are encouraged to present papers dealing with at least one of these aspects:
- comparing divine names and epithets in different traditions and languages (translations, adaptations, interpretations, etc., considering in particular Masoretic Text, Septuagint, Qumran, but also New Testament and later versions of the Bible);
- comparing divine names and epithets in different religious systems (for example, Levantine, Anatolian, Egyptian or Mesopotamian religions, Graeco-Roman religions, Judaism, early Christianity and Islam) in order to redefine the limits of the opposition between “polytheism” and “monotheism” and to promote an anthropological approach to ancient religious systems;
- studying the relations between divine names attested in texts and inscriptions and iconographic representations.
