Prophecy and Politics: Conference Announcement

Prophecy and Politics in Ancient Israel and in Ancient Cultures
University of Haifa, 28-31.5.2012

The Department of Biblical Studies at the University of Haifa is holding an international conference: “Prophecy and Politics in Ancient Israel and in Ancient Cultures”.

The intention of the conference is to examine the biblical prophets and prophecy in ancient cultures in general—within the geographical compass of Mesopotamia, Egypt and the Levant—from the beginnings of writing until the first century CE. The focus will be on the attitudes of ancient writers and readers to political-historical events.

A one day excursion is planned: In the footsteps of Elijah, Elisha and the necromancer of En-Dor. We would like to interest you in this conference, and we invite you to propose a lecture. Please let us know of your interest by 31 October 2011, by E-mail or regular mail.
