SAMR Panels at the SBL 2013, Baltimore MD

Deadline:  March 1, 2013

The Society for Ancient Mediterranean Religions seeks to explore rituals and customs practiced by a wide variety of individuals and communities, including Greek, Roman, Jewish, and Christian among others.  Our focus ranges chronologically from the Bronze Age through Late Antiquity and geographically from the Fertile Crescent to the Straits of Gibraltar.

In 2013, we plan to hold two sessions. One is an open session that seeks papers that focus on one of the following areas: (1) healing and associated practices  (2) death and funerary practices  (3) household and domestic cult. The other session will be an invited panel emphasizing Roman religion in the first half of the second century: “From Trajan to Marcion.”

Proposals must be submitted electronically through the SBL website.  You must be a member of the SBL or seek a waiver from SAMR in order to propose a paper.
