Eighth Enoch Seminar: Apocalypticism and Mysticism
Conference Date: 21 to 26 June, 2015
Location: Italy (near Milan)
The Eighth Enoch Seminar will convene at the Villa Cagnola in Gazzada, Italy (near Milan), from 21 to 26 June, 2015. The meeting is organised by Daniel Boyarin (Berkeley, USA), Lorenzo DiTommaso (Montreal, Canada), and Elliot Wolfson (Santa Barbara, USA), under the guidance of the Founding Director of the Enoch Seminar Gabriele Boccaccini (Michigan, USA).
The Seminar topic is apocalypticism and mysticism, their natures and relationship, in Judaism and Christianity from the Second Temple period through the late antique and early mediaeval centuries. The aim is to discuss the main issues in light of new evidence, methodologies, and approaches, oriented by a desire to advance the discussion along a broad front. While we do not expect to address every issue or answer every question, we do anticipate that the published results of our Seminar will stand as a foundational study for future research. Additional information will be posted on the Enoch Seminar and 4 Enoch websites over the course of the year.
As participation is by invitation only, we invite all interested specialists to contact the Seminar secretary, Jason Zurawski as soon as possible, at the latest by 1 December 2014. Those interested in presenting a short paper should include a proposal containing a paper title and brief abstract. Plenary and short papers circulate in advance and are not read in the sessions, which are devoted primarily to discussion.
