This international congress proposes to bring together forty scholars from Latin America and the Iberian Peninsula, as well as researchers from those countries residing in North America, to address present and future perspectives on the study of Second Temple Judaism.

The study of the history, practices, and beliefs of Second Temple Judaism constitutes a vast field of research in Ibero-America. Under the auspices of the Enoch Seminar, the Pontificia Universidade Católica de Campinas, the Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile, and the Universidad Nacional de La Rioja, this seminar will bring together leading scholars to share their work and participate in a conversation about the present and future prospects of the field. Specialists in Biblical Studies, Judaic Studies, Classics Studies, and early Christianism have been invited to attend.

From the different approaches and themes (historical, critical-philological, literary, theological, gender perspectives, semiotics, reception in art and popular culture, apocalyptic and apocalypticism, mysticism, among others), various textual fields can be approached: Old and New Testament, Jewish and Christian Apocalypses, Old and New Testament Pseudepigrapha and Apocrypha, Dead Sea Scrolls, Targumim, Rabbinic Literature, Nag Hammadi Texts, Classical Literature, Hellenistic and Roman authors, among other diverse sources linked to Second Temple Judaism.
