Call for Proposals

This Group invites papers on two topics:

  • Any aspect of early Syriac Christianity, including but not limited to Syriac patristic literature, such as that of Ephrem the Syrian, Narsai, Babai the Great, as well as Syriac Christian spirituality, and early Christian–Muslim contacts
  • Religious architecture in Eastern Orthodox Christianity, which could include historical, cultural, political, liturgical, and theological aspects of the church building and its interior elements, both ancient and contemporary


This Group exists to study the theology, history, and practice of the Eastern Christian churches, including their mutual interaction with Western Christian and non-Christian groups.

Anonymity of Review Process

Proposals are anonymous to Chairs and Steering Committee Members during review, but visible to Chairs prior to final acceptance or rejection.
