whose publications have shown a special interest in the translation of such
texts. In particular, the conference is concerned with the following topics:

1. How does a translator (fail to) bridge the gap between a sacred text and the
language to which this text is translated?
2. What linguistic patterns can the sacred text translation reveal that the
translation of other texts cannot?
3. What is the relevance of the linguistic science to the sacred text translation?
4. What are the challenges facing the translation of the rhetorical and literary
texture of the sacred texts?
5. Is exegesis a prerequisite to a sacred text translation?
