Welcome to the Congress


The organizers are going to give a local colour to the congress by giving priority to main papers on topics that are crucial for Old Testament Studies in Helsinki, such as Textual History, Septuagint, Qumran, and Deuteronomistic History, as well as Archaeology. Other subjects are addressed in short paper sessions and in sessions of different research groups.  

Personally, I always find IOSOT congresses a delightful event where I learn new things and get fresh ideas. It is a chance to meet old friends and make new ones. When I return home, I am full of energy and enthusiasm for my own research and teaching.

Especially I should like to encourage younger scholars and students to attend and get involved in the international scholarly community.

Helsinki is proud to organize this event, the next IOSOT Congress after the wonderful IOSOT meeting in Ljubljana, 2007.

You are heartily welcome to Helsinki!
