2005 is the fiftieth annivesary of the publication (in Greek) of Nikos
Kazantzakis's novel, "The Last Temptation of Christ." Since this time, and
especially after Martin Scorsese's filmic adapatation of the novel in
1988, assessments of this work have ranged from "praiseworthy" to
"blasphemous," according to religious persuasion.
Proposals are invited for a chapter contributions to an essay collection
reappreciating "The Last Temptation of Christ" fifty years on. The
anthology, to be published in 2005, will be divided into two sections, one
part devoted to the novel and one part devoted to the film.
