Origen and Origen Reception Seminar

Statement of Purpose: 

The mission of the Origen and Origen Reception seminar is to foster focused discussion about central themes in Origen’s thinking and about the reception thereof. The seminar will include all aspects of Origen' thinking such as theology, philosophy, history, exegesis, and philology. The seminar is particularly interested in the reception of Origen of Alexandria’s thinking in various times and places. Each session of the seminar will thus focus on a specific aspect of his thought and its reception in later traditions.

Call for Papers: 

The Origen and Origen Reception Seminar is seeking papers for the 2019 session that explore Origen of Alexandria’s biblical exegesis and its reception. Papers can explore specific examples of Origen’s exegesis, but they should also address theoretical and methodological aspects of Origen’s exegesis. The seminar also invites papers that explore the reception of Origen’s exegetical work and methods in later traditions. Papers that contribute to a comprehensive and complex understanding of Origen’s exegetical endeavor and its reception are preferred.

Proposer names are visible to chairs and steering committee members at all times
This worked well. Even I as chair did not look at the names before in the last part of the process to secure balance in gender, seniority etc.
