Conference Announcement: Prophets and Prophecy

»Ich sehe, daß du ein Prophet bist.« (Joh 4,19)

Am Samstag, 29. November findet von 9:30 bis 19 Uhr in der Akademie Franz Hitze Haus (Kardinal-von-Galen-Ring 50, 48149 Münster) eine Tagung zum Thema »Prophetie – ein vergessenes Charisma? Der biblische Impuls als aktuelle Herausforderung« statt. Die Katholisch-Theologische Fakultät Bochum stellt mit Prof. Dr. Thomas Söding und Prof. Dr. Christian Frevel zwei Referenten.

Die Prophetie gehört zum »Urgestein« der biblischen Überlieferung. Im Alten Testament finden sich die großen Prophetenbücher des Jesaja, Jeremia und Ezechiel mit ihren Visionen »eines neuen Himmels und einer neuen Erde«. Aber auch Sozialprotest und Kritik am Götzenkult kommen zur Sprache. Spuren dieser Prophetie finden sich auch im Neuen Testament, wo etwa Johannes der Täufer als der »letzte Prophet« gilt und Jesus selbst Motive der Prophetie aufgreift.

In der Tagung werden die Stimmen der biblischen Prophetie erneut zum Klingen gebracht. Zugleich wird die Frage gestellt, was Prophetie heute in Kirche und Gesellschaft bedeuten kann. Der Studientag schließt mit der Heiligen Messe zum Ersten Advent.

SOTS Winter Meeting, 2015- Program and Booking Form

leave a comment »

The Program, the Booking Form, and Directions to the College are all available now.  SOTS is

an academic learned society embracing the Old Testament, and its cognate areas such as Hebrew and other Semitic languages, the literature, religion, history, archaeology and sociology of ancient Israel, and the study of the Old Testament in the light of modern literary theory. The ‘rules’ by which the Society is guided may be found here.

Although it has an international membership of around 450, it meets in the British Isles, and normally organises annual Winter and Summer Meetings (see Conferences), as well as joint meetings every third year with the Dutch and Flemish Old Testament Society. Among the publications that it has sponsored is a distinguished series of volumes surveying the progress of research in Old Testament studies, an annual Book List containing short reviews of recent publications, and a series of Study Guides.

The Presidents of the Society have included the most distinguished British Old Testament Scholars.

A brief history of the Society (1917-1992) has been written by Professor John W. Rogerson.

Membership in SOTS

Candidates for membership are required to be competent in biblical Hebrew and should complete this form, also available as a Word document, which must be countersigned by two members of the Society prepared to nominate them. Students must normally be enrolled on a PhD programme to be considered for membership. The application form should be returned, preferably electronically, to the Secretary, Dr Hilary Marlow, Faculty of Divinity, University of Cambridge, West Road, Cambridge CB3 9BS (hm309@cam.ac.uk).
