CO-SPONSORED SESSION: History of Christianity Unit and SBL Use, Influence, and Impact of the Bible Unit

Call for Papers: 

The location and date of our meeting further prompts us to consider the hemispheric and transatlantic linguistic dimensions of contact, as 2019 represents the 450-year anniversary of the publication of La Biblia del Oso (The Bear Bible), the first Spanish-language translation of the Bible which was published in 1569 in Basel, Switzerland by the exiled monk Casiodoro de Reina. His fellow monk Cipriano de Valera, revised his work, culminating in the 1602 Reina y Valera Bible. It looms as large in the memory and culture of Spanish-speaking Protestantism as does the 1611 King James translation in English-speaking Protestantism. In keeping with the theme of encounters, we invite papers that explore the history of sacred text making, translating, and reception history within communities in and around the hispanophone world.

Proposals are anonymous to chairs and steering committee members during review, but visible to chairs prior to final acceptance or rejection
