"For the 2018 conference, we are planning a seminar consisting of two sessions: In Session 1, we welcome written proposals focused on two topics:
a) the concept of colour in Antiquity.
b) the meaning and function of colour terms in the Bible (Hebrew Scriptures, Septuagint, and New Testament), or in related texts, either because they were inspired by it or because they can be considered as a precedent in the use of the color terms. In Session 2, we especially welcome written proposals on the function of colour in biblical artistic representations (illuminated manuscripts; paintings; etc.) during the Medieval Ages including questions such as: which were the salient colours? what were their origins? what did they symbolize?"
