2019 ETS Septuagint Studies Sessions

Not too long ago I mentioned the fact that the Septuagint Studies section that I help co-chair (with John Meade) at ETS was accepting paper proposals from the general call. You can read more about the history of our section — which began as a trial meeting back in 2015 — right here. Part of the great thing about being a section, aside from having a six-year time frame to work with, is that we get an invited session and an open session. So it’s double the fun.

Today, I’m pleased to share the details of both sessions for this year’s conference. We will meet in the afternoon slots on both Wednesday and Thursday.
