CALL FOR PAPERS AND PARTICIPATION IN THE WORKSHOP
BIBLICAL TRADITIONS IN THE NEW WORLD
SPONSORED BY THE PROJECT
The importance of the Bible in the West is beyond question: the enormous influence of this text corpus can be traced through the art (painting, sculpture, music, architecture, etc.), philosophy, politics, and science of the Old World, from Late Roman times into the Middle Ages. The Renaissance did not end Scripture's sway; instead, it revitalized the interpretation of the Bible.
In the New World, the Bible was the pillar of evangelization efforts, and part of the foundations of a new culture. Its influence may be seen in many works of art and texts, many of which were translations of Scripture into Mesoamerican languages.
