Dear Friends, Colleagues and Fans of the Scrolls,
As you certainly know, the next, sixteenth International
Meeting of the Society of Biblical Literature will be held in
Cracow, Poland on July 19-22,1998. Among other features, there
will be a special session on Qumran organized at the conference.
Numerous papers by internationally recognized scholars
are expected. As usual, we will call the session MOGILANY, this
time MOGILANY 1998.
We would welcome very much in Cracow all participants of the
previous Mogilany colloquia and also young people beginning their
Biblical and Qumran research who would like to take part in the
SBL Meeting, but fear the high hotel prices. Please get in touch
with the Organizing Secretary of the Mogilany Colloquia, i.e.
myself, to find inexpensive accommodation in Cracow. We have in
mind a possibility to rent rooms in a modern seminary building only
20 minutes by tram from the conference venue.
We have a reservation for a limited number of rooms from July 18
to 23, 1998. If you wish to take the opportunity and are not a
former participant in the Mogilany colloquia, please briefly
introduce yourself in your e-mail, stating your age and sex, the
name of your university and of your professor (if you are a
student), and give us the number od days you would like to stay and
how much you are able to pay per day. The price offered to you
will include breakfast (between 7.00 and 8.00 in the morning) and
simple cold buffet meal if you are late for the evening meal at
6.00-7.00 P.M. Reservations can be for single, double and triple
rooms. The building is new; some rooms have no separate showers or
WC, but the accommodation is comfortable. The only inconvenience:
the doors of the seminary are close from 11.00 P.M. till 6.00 A.M.
No prepayment will be requested before arrival in Cracow, but we
expect to be notified at once in case of a resignation.
The accommodation can be arranged only through my recommendation
and, unfortunately, to limited number of people, so it was
impossible to include the offer in the official offer of the SBL.
But we should like to host as many Qumran scholars and students in
Cracow as possible. Do not hesitate, come and see our beautiful
city with many historic monuments and museums. The SBL Meeting in
Cracow gives you a unique opportunity.
