Traditions and Religious Worlds of Late Antiquity – #AARSBL15 Monday Afternoon November 23, 2015

Traditions or Eastern Late Antiquity co-sponsored a session with the SBL section on Religious Worlds of Late Antiquity, focused on exploring and problematizing the phenomena that have been labeled “Christianization” and “Islamicization.” The papers looked at topics at the intersection of the two traditions, such as celibacy, and sacred space. I was delighted to see how well-attended it was.
