ARAM 2013 Conference on the Mandaeans: The Program So Far

ARAM 2013 Conference on the Mandaeans: The Program So Far February 15, 2013

Below are the papers that have already been placed on the program of the ARAM conference on the Mandaeans, which will be held in Oxford in July, including my own. I expect that there will be still more before the program is finalized. If you do research that is related to the Mandaeans, and have not yet submitted a paper proposal, please do so! Conferences dedicated to this area are rare, and I can tell you from my experience at the last conference back in 2009, that it is amazing to be at an event of this sort, so different than the immensity of the American Academy of Religion or the Society of Biblical Literature.
