Informational Purpose

The Biblical Greek Language and Linguistics (BGL&L) Section is part of the Society of Biblical Literature (SBL). This section aims to promote and discuss ongoing research into biblical Greek language and linguistics, covering the Septuagint and particularly the New Testament.

We meet once a year as part of the Society of Biblical Literature Annual Meeting (which typical meets every November, from Saturday to Tuesday before the Thanksgiving holiday in the U.S.). According to the SBL website:

The SBL Annual Meeting is the largest gathering of biblical scholars in the world. Each meeting showcases the latest in biblical research, fosters collegial contacts, advances research, and focuses on issues of the profession.

One of the world’s largest exhibits of books and digital resources for biblical studies is on display at the congress. At this meeting, scholars benefit from sessions on religion, philosophy, ethics, and diverse religious traditions.

This site has an informational purpose. While it provides some information from past meetings, it will mainly serve to post announcements about future meetings of the Section at SBL and provide details of the papers to be presented.
