The Thirteenth International Orion Symposium: Tradition, Transmission, and Transformation: From Second Temple Literature through Judaism and Christianity in Late Antiquity, 22–24 February 2011

The Thirteenth Orion Symposium addressed some connections between rabbinic Judaism, Christianity, and Second Temple writings from the vantage point of particular textual examples that demonstrate different trajectories of development from the earlier texts through later tradition. Along the way, presenters questioned some of the paradigms through which “transmission” is commonly understood, and sought new ways to articulate the process of later reception of ancient traditions.
