Call for papers: The Tenth Birmingham Colloquium on the Textual Criticism of the New Testament
The tenth Birmingham Colloquium on the Textual Criticism of the New Testament will be held in Birmingham from Monday 20th to Wednesday 22nd March 2017. The title of the colloquium is “Lives of the Text”, with a double focus:
1) the significance of liturgy in the textual transmission of the New Testament (e.g. lectionary manuscripts, canticles);
2) reflections on D.C. Parker’s “The Living Text of the Gospels” twenty years after its publication.
As in previous years, accommodation has been reserved at Woodbrooke Quaker Studies Centre; a booking form will be issued shortly.
Proposals are invited for papers related to the above topics to be delivered at the colloquium. The standard slot will be 30 minutes (to include questions). Proposals should be submitted to H.A.G.H…@bham.ac.uk by Tuesday 3rd January 2017 at the latest; all submissions will be acknowledged by email and a programme released in the early New Year.
