Welcome to the Online Bibliography of the Paul and Scripture Seminar of the Society of Biblical Literature
One of the projects of the seminar is to create a collaborative online bibliography to assist scholars in performing research on Paul's use of Scripture. The bibliography was set up in wiki format so that interested scholars can maintain and update the file over time. Anyone can use the site on a read-only basis, but users who wish to add resources to the bibliography or otherwise contribute to its maintenance (e.g., by adding summaries and keywords to the entries) should send a message to firstname.lastname@example.org to request editing privileges. Individual items may also be submitted to this address for entry into the bibliography.

The default style sheet for the online bibliography is The SBL Handbook of Style, edited by Patrick H. Alexander et al. (Peabody, MA: Hendrickson, 1999). An electronic version of the handbook can be downloaded at sbl-site.org/assets/pdfs/SBLHS.pdf.
