International Voices in Biblical Studies series


The International Voices in Biblical Studies series is an online, open-access series published by SBL.

International Voices in Biblical Studies (IVBS) is an SBL peer-reviewed series that publishes monographs, volumes of collected essays, conference proceedings, and single articles meant to further scholarship in biblical studies. Its main goal is to make the excellent work of colleagues in under-resourced parts of the world known all over the globe, including the traditional centers of biblical scholarship in (mainly) Europe and North America.

The works in the series address the reception history of the Bible in Latin America, Africa, Central and Eastern Europe, the Middle East and South Asian Region, Southeast Asia, Northeast Asia, and the Pacific.

The general editors are Monica Melanchthon (United Faculty of Theology ) and Louis Jonker (University of Stellenbosch). The series’ website provides information regarding proposals.
