CRINT Essay Prize in Early Jewish and Christian Studies
The Compendia Rerum Iudaicarum ad Novum Testamentum (CRINT) Foundation invites submissions for its bi-annual Essay Prize, to be awarded to the best paper on a topic related to the early history of Jews and Christians. Any essay illuminating how Jews and Christians shared and/or developed their own traditions and identities during the first six centuries CE is eligible. Rabbinic literature and culture have long been areas of special focus of CRINT and submissions that in some way engage or draw on these fields of study are therefore especially welcomed.
The amount of the prize is €1.000. (Post-)graduate students and scholars who received their PhD no earlier than 2016 are eligible to submit a paper.
The CRINT Foundation supports open access initiatives, and additional funds may be made available to help cover article processing charges for the prizewinning essay.
In order to participate, submit a document not exceeding 10,000 words (including footnotes; a bibliography is not necessary) to Dr. Matthijs den Dulk (firstname.lastname@example.org) by July 1, 2021. The essay should not have been previously published. Submissions will be judged with particular attention to originality, significance, persuasiveness of argumentation and clarity of expression.
The 2021 award committee consists of Profs. Karl-Wilhelm Niebuhr, Richard Kalmin, and Joshua Schwartz.
