Wuppertal 2020 Call for Papers
At the 2020 meeting in Wuppertal our research group is going to explore "Places of Visionary Experiences”. We are interested in submissions dealing with the topography and cosmology of vision accounts in Biblical texts as well as in the Ancient Near East or the Graeco-Roman world. What particular kinds of places are suitable for revelations of certain deities or ecstatic experiences? How do the descriptions fit within the perception of space in the larger socio-cultural context? Papers that shed light upon narratological features are welcome as well as contributions on religious historical, iconographic or pragmatic aspects.
