The Biblical Conference in 2017 is organized by Szeged International Biblical Conference Foundation. 

Lecturers should send us both the title and a short outline of their planned lectures in German or in English by 6th January, 2017.  The lectures that have already arrived on the topic of the letter to the Romans will be put into three groups:

1 The place of the letter to the Romans in the history of exegesis with Orthodox, Catholic and Protestant authors.

2 Interpretation of confessionally debated passages in the letter to the Romans

3 Approaches to the text of the letter to the Romans with biblical theological methods, the interpretation of theological and moral concepts in the lights of epistolary literature and Hellenistic and systematic theology.

The topic chosen by the lecturers should be presented with the use of some concrete text from the Old or the New Testament or from the literature of the Early Christians. Please, also include the related bibliography in footnotes. The summary should include the most important arguments of the lecturer and also the texts they are based upon. The summary presented in German or English should not exceed 1500 characters, including space. 

We are planning to publish the lectures presented at the Conference in our conference volume in German or in English, about one year after the conference. The texts of Hungarian lectures will be published on the homepage of the conference: http://www.sznbk1988.hu/hu .The deadline for presenting the press-ready text is 26th November, 2017.   

Those who are first-time lecturers at our conference please make sure that you send us your brief scholarly CV denoting your three most important publications.  We would kindly ask you ALL to provide us with your scholarly title and your workplace.  Please, make sure that the Hebrew and Greek words are transcribed in Latin according to scholarly transcription. The final text should be about 25,000 characters. The length of the text of the lecture to be published should not exceed 25.000 or a maximum of 30,000 characters (with space).  The publication of texts arriving after the 26th of November, 2017 may be doubtful. In case any text extends the above mentioned length, negotiation will be needed.

We offer free board and lodging for our lecturers for the time of the conference as well as participation in the cultural programmes free of charge.  Please, inform us as soon as possible and before 7st June, 2017 if you have any special requirement concerning meals.  Please, make sure that you send us the exact date and time of your arrival and your departure before 1st June, 2017. This will help us a lot in organizing the event.

Religious and cultural conflicts in the Bible and in the Early Church

27TH  INTERNATIONAL BIBLICAL CONFERENCE
 

Date: 29th – 31st August, 2016
Venue: Szeged Cathedral Visitor Centre,  H-6720 Szeged, 15th Dóm square

Patrons of the Conference:

  • Dr. György Jakubinyi,  Archbishop of Alba Iulia
  • László Dr. Kiss-Rigó,  Bishop of Szeged-Csanád Diocese
  • Prof. Dr. Joachim Gnilka
  • Prof. Dr. Szabolcs Anzelm Szuromi,  Pázmány Péter Catholic University, Budapest
  • Prof. Dr. Levente Balázs Martos,  Member of Pontificio Commissio Biblica
     

The number of conflicts is rising in our environment and fiery ethnic and millions of people are driven away from their homes by religious conflicts or scrimmages disguised as ones.  We can also read about the surrender of Christian slaves. Our question here is what these conflicts were like in the Old and New Testaments and within the Early Christian Church? 

The aim of the Foundation of Szeged International Biblical Conference, established last year, is to carry on and to extend the work of the Szeged International Biblical Conference. Besides the traditional series of lectures, the different work groups are going to hold discussions. 

The Hellenistic work group is going to examine the Pagan literary background of the New Testament.
The Bible Reception History workgroup is going to examine the works of art in Hungarian literature inspired by the Holy Scriptures.
The Bible Translator’s work group is going to examine the possibilities of a Catholic-Protestant translation of the Bible in order to enhance our joint testimony.
The recording of the Audio Bible in three-minute bits has started and from 2017 on they can be heard on the Mária Radios and hopefully also in other different programs in the Hungarian public media on a daily basis.

The Biblical Conference in 2016 is organized by the recently registered Szeged International Biblical Conference Foundation.
