Call for Papers: Renaissance Society of America 2008 Conference

                          Chicago, Illinois 3-5 April, 2008

East and West in the Holy Land. 1517-1713.

This session will take a comparative look at travel to the Levant, but
more specifically to the Holy Land. How differently do people from
various regions reflect on the experience? Given the Jewish, Christian,
and Muslim veneration for the land, what role does religious belief play
in the making of the geographical narratives? What social, theological,
and/or political views do the narratives express? How might church or
state governments utilize these views and to what purpose?

Dear Colleagues,

Publishing a conference paper in a refereed journal is rarely the immediate
outcome of a conference presentation; however, this call for papers is also
a call for such scholarly articles.

 

Please read the email below, visit the website listed below, and if you
still have questions, feel free to contact me directly.

 

Do pass this call on by word of mouth and via your other list-serves.

 

Finally, encourage your Ph.D students to submit abstracts -- the Zora forum
is an excellent source of both intellectual support and constructive
criticism.

Dulia et Latria (roughly translated as service to man and service to
God) is an online journal dedicated to exploring dulia and latria
within the Christian faith. In his late 14th century Tractatus de
Mandatis Divinis, John Wycliffe, writing against iconic idolatry within
the Catholic church, defined dulia as the reverence men and women owe
to each other and latria as the reverence a man or woman owes only to
God. He was interested in developing a taxonomy for and an analysis of
duties involved in the horizontal relationship between created beings
themselves and the vertical relationship between the created and the
creator, and so are we. With our journal we wish to showcase current and
