Cambridge scholars, mostly members of the Forum, took active part in the EAJS Congress 2014. They delivered papers, chaired panels and sessions, helped with organizing the panels, and participated in various congress events.
The keynote lecture "The Reception of Biblical Hebrew in the Middle Ages" was given by Geoffrey Khan and Ben Outhwaite.
The following papers were delivered (in order of the programme):
Title: The Jewish Neo-Aramaic Dialects
Title: Feminine Overtures: Jewish Women Musicians Encountering Non-Jewish Society
Title: Literal Meaning in Talmud Literature
Title: Attitudes to non-Jews reflected in Liturgical Texts from the Genizah and from other Manuscript Codices
Title: The Diversity of the So-called Non-standard Tiberian Vocalisation Tradition of Biblical Hebrew
Title: Hebrew/Aramaic Component in Secret Languages: the Case of Greek
Nicholas de Lange,
Title: The Greek Bible in the Early Byzantine Synagogue: Justinian’s Novella 146 Reconsidered
Title: Studying Hebrew Bible in the Fourteenth-Century Byzantium: New manuscript Evidence
Title: Jewish Self-Government and Mechanisms of Power of the Jewish Authorities in Venetian Crete as Documented in Takkanot Kandiyah
Title: Parallels between Medieval Jewish and Muslim Treatises on the Recitation of Scripture
Title: Alexander Altmann and the Construction of an Orthodox Jewish Theology
Daniel H. Weiss,
Title: Formal Multiplicity and Conceptual Unity in Jewish Theology
The Closing Ceremony of the Congress was chaired by Nicholas de Lange.
Last but not the least, the list of Cambridge alumni among the Congress's attendees and organizers is too long to be mentioned here. It will not be an exaggeration to say that the European Congress of Jewish Studies 2014 owes its success to the joint effort of all the above.
