Société d'Études Samaritaines at the SBL Annual Meeting

November 19, 2010 – November 22, 2010

During the Annual Meeting of Society of Biblical Literature in Atlanta, GA, November 19-22, 2010, the three recent publications by members of the SES were discussed in a special session. The session was well attended, despite its being a novelty in this setting. The authors Magnar Kartveit and Reinhard Pummer presented their books, and Menahem Mor introduced the conference volume edited by himself and Friedrich Reiterer. Eric Welsh of Pennsylvania State University commented on the two books, and Gary Knoppers chaired the session. There was a lively discussion with the attendants, revealing a continuing interest in Samaritan studies in the US. Samaritan problems were discussed in many other sessions as well, such as the Deuteronomy/Deuteronomistic session etc.
