Conference: Functions of Psalms and Prayers in the Late Second Temple Period

This looks like an interesting conference:

Functions of Psalms and Prayers in the Late Second Temple Period (Sept. 25-26, Helsinki) | Changes in Sacred Texts and Traditions

Here are the sessions that seem most interesting to me:

Friday 9.15-10.00 Dr. Kipp Davis (University of Agder): “Column Structure and Standardisation: Some Observations of Scribal Features in the Judaean Desert Psalms Manuscripts and their Implications.”

Friday 11.15-12.00 PhD student Katri Antin (University of Helsinki): “Wisdom as a Prerequisite for Praising God: 1QHa 9:1–10:4 as a Case Study.”

Saturday 9.00-10.00 Prof. Jesper Høgenhaven (University of Copenhagen): “Psalms as prophecy: Evidence for the reading of Psalms as prophetic text and the formation of the canon.”

Saturday 11.30-12.15 Dr. Eva Mroczek (University of California) “When David Sang in Heaven: Reading Second Temple Psalms Traditions with Later Jewish and Christian Texts.”

Here’s a link to the conference page.
