The Institute of English Studies, The Centre for Hermeneutical Research of Károli Gáspár University of the Reformed Church in Hungary (www.kre.hu) and The Hungarian Bible Society are proud to announce an interdisciplinary conference on “THE KING JAMES BIBLE (1611-2011): PREHISTORY AND AFTERLIFE” to be held in Budapest, September 16-18, 2011. Proposals related to any literary, linguistic, cultural or theological aspects of the subject are invited from scholars wishing to contribute. Our institution is named after the 16th century Reformed Pastor Gáspár Károli who published the first complete Hungarian Bible in 1590. THE KÁROLI BIBLE’s influence on Hungarian language and culture is as significant as THE KING JAMES BIBLE’S impact on the English-speaking world. A session for comparing these two outstanding national icons is also encouraged. Please send the proposed title and an abstract of ca. 300 words of the proposed paper by April 15, 2011. All applications should be sent to: kingjamesbible.budapest@kre.hu
