John Meade’s New Edition of the Hexaplaric Evidence for Job

Call for Papers: Septuagint Studies Section – ETS 2020

It is a real pleasure to work alongside Chris Fresch and a great steering committee to help build the Septuagint Studies section at the annual meeting of ETS. I’m excited to publicize an open call for papers for our 2020 meeting in Providence, RI.

We do not have any specific themes to work with this year, so the possibilities are fairly wide open. If you are in a PhD program or a professor working on a topic in or related to Septuagint, consider sending in a proposal! We are excited to host this year’s sessions and look forward to receiving them. You can begin the submission process here.

If you’re interested, you can read a little about the history of our section here:
