It is a great pleasure to announce that the Call for Papers for the Third Annual Meeting on Christian Origins (September 29 – October 1, 2016) sponsored by the CISSR – Italian Centre for Advanced Studies on Religions is officially open.  It is now possible, therefore, to register online and submit a paper proposal.

As in the past years, the conference will take place in the nice location of Bertinoro (a small and picturesque village near Bologna and Ravenna) and will be hosted by the CEUB – University Residential Centre of Bertinoro. The Centre has its own conference facilities, including a variety of office and meeting spaces, accommodation and canteen.

The CISSR Annual Meeting on Christian Origins wishes to provide a space for scientific debate and discussion on the broader field of early Christianity, including research on the historical Jesus, the interpretation of the early Christian writings, and the history of the early Christian groups in the Jewish and Greco-Roman world (1st and 2nd century). The meeting takes the form of “Program Units”, coordinated by specialists and young researchers. Papers are expected from a wide range of perspectives: history, exegesis, archaeology, papyrology, anthropology of religions, comparative studies, social sciences, cultural studies, and so on.

The call for papers closes: April 30, 2016
