PILGRIMS AND TRAVELLERS TO THE HOLY LAND
THE SEVENTH ANNUAL KLUTZNICK SYMPOSIUM
OCTOBER 2-3, 1994
CALL FOR PAPERS
The Klutznick Chair in Jewish Civilization and Creighton University's Center for the Study of Religion and Society will host the Seventh Annual Klutznick Symposium in Omaha, Nebraska, on October 2 and 3, 1994. The Symposium theme is "Pilgrims and Travelers to the Holy Land".
Throughout the ages, travelers from many cultures, for many reasons, have been drawn TO and THROUGH the geographical area known as "The Holy Land." The land sacred to Jews, Christians, and Moslems has been a crossroads or a destination for soldiers,scholars, and plain simple people. The Seventh Symposium will survey the major sites, consider the character of the pilgrimages and rituals, and explore the concepts and geographical definition of "The Holy Land" as it applies to each of the three religions. Other topics will relate to the literature of this extended hegira and community of explorers, travelers and traders, as well as to the art and sciences influenced by their experiences.
Those chosen to be presenters at the symposium will have twenty minutes to deliver their papers. Subsidies for the cost of the transportation and accommodation of presenters will be arranged. It is expected that the proceedings of the symposium will be published in book form.
