Cambridge Scholars Publishing is pleased to announce the publication of Essays on Moses from Buenos Aires: Moses in Three Traditions and in Literature, edited by John Tracy Greene.

Essays on Moses from Buenos Aires: Moses in Three Traditions and in Literature brings together papers presented at the International Annual Meeting of the Society of Biblical Literature’s Seminar in Biblical Characters in Three Traditions (Judaism, Christianity, and Islam) and in Literature. In 2015, this Meeting took place at the Pontifical Catholic University in Buenos Aires, Argentina, with the biblical character of concern being Moses, resulting in a myriad of approaches taken in understanding traditions concerning him.

The Seminar has provided a forum for scholars of the three traditions and literature to express freely, and in a scholarly atmosphere, their learned opinions concerning one biblical character at each meeting. The purpose is two-fold: (1) to take advantage of the academic freedom proffered by the Seminar in a courteous, yet intensive, environment, and (2) through the proceedings volumes, to provide a growing and specialized research library on the development of learned opinions on specific biblical characters. This volume will appeal to the university and seminary scholar – both professorial and student – as well as the interested, intelligent reader.
