Sacred Texts and Human Contexts: Poverty and Wealth in Judaism, Christianity, and IslamPayments accepted from Nov. 4, 2013, 6 a.m. until June 15, 2014, midnight.
At a time of this growing gap between rich and poor, how do Jews, Christians and Muslims view and interpret their sacred texts in reference to poverty and wealth throughout their religious history. We invite you to our second international symposium at which we seek to explore the role of Abrahamic religions in the dynamic relationship between wealth and poverty as it exists in individuals lives and in nations. Please submit your proposals for a presentation or panel, or as questions you hope to see this symposium should address. We encourage submissions from social scientists, historians as well as scholars in theology and religious studies in particular.
