    Colloquium Biblicum Lovaniense LXIX, 2020 (President: Jan Willem van Henten, University of Amsterdam)

    The reception history of the four Books of the Maccabees is as rich as it is diverse. The relevance of these books is apparent from the multi-faceted ongoing recent scholarship, which can be characterized by the incorporation of literary approaches, a renewed interest in historical issues and the contemporary political and cultural contexts of the books, a more systematic discussion of religious and theological themes and a more intense study of the reception history. Nevertheless, we are still in need of elaborate analyses of the literary aspects of the Maccabean Books. The recent publication of a decree during Seleucus IV’s rule calls for a re-assessment of 1 and 2 Maccabees as historical sources as well as renewed contextualizations of the books as historical documents. How do the Maccabean books articulate the interactions of religion with politics and culture? What could be the theological relevance of 1-4 Maccabees? Finally, the reception history of the Maccabean Books also deserves further study.

    CALL FOR SHORT PAPERS: Short paper proposals (including name, institutional affiliation, postal address, e-mail address, title and abstract of ca. 200 words) should be sent to: Jan Willem van Henten, President CBL 2020, j.w.vanhenten中国福利彩票app靠谱吗@uva.nl no later than 31 March 2020.

    9/7-9/11 International Summer School on Biblical Hebrew Poetry
    At KU Leuven. Largely considered one of the poetic gems of biblical literature, the Song of Songs (henceforth, Song) was commented upon more than any other biblical book, especially in the Middle Ages. Not only has the Song been one of the most inspiring biblical poems for both Jewish and Christian theologians, it has also fired up the souls and creativity of countless writers and artists throughout the centuries. This Summer School intends to provide its participants with a thorough investigation of the Song of Song's poetry and its reception in Judaism, from the Rabbinic period to the Middle Ages. International experts in the field will offer lectures and workshops.
