American Society of Church History Winter Meeting
(meeting concurrently with American Historical Association)
3-6 January 2002
San Francisco, California
Ever since Paul identified prophecy as a gift of the Holy Spirit, Christian institutions have been reconciling the potential for continuous revelation with the need to establish a functional (if not final) religious system. Throughout the history of Christianity, groups ranging from Montanists to medieval visionaries to early Quakers to twentieth-century Pentecostals have proclaimed a series of prophetic renaissances, often to the dismay of their more institutionally-minded contemporaries.
This call seeks papers addressing the impact of specific instances of post-Biblical prophecy on the Christianity (or Christianities) of that place and time. Papers covering any period or location in the history of Christianity will be considered. Offers to moderate or respond are also welcome. One or more finalized sessions will be submitted for approval to the ASCH Program Committee.
Please send two- to three-page abstracts complete with titles and contact information by April 1, 2001 by either email (preferred) or fax to Wendy Love Anderson at the above address.
