New EABS unit on Slavonic parabiblical traditions

EUROPEAN ASSOCIATION OF BIBLICAL STUDIES: Slavonic Parabiblical Traditions EABS annual meeting 2016. I know that I already noted the full EABS 2016 program here, but this is a brand new workshop research unit and it deserves to be highlighted. Follow the link for full details and note the CFP for this year:
Call for Papers 2016

Papers are invited on various aspects of “Visitors from Heaven, Visitors to Heaven” narratives, with special emphasis on Slavonic apocryphal writings, oral tradition and iconography. The aim will be to compare and contrast Slavonic texts with others (extant in Hebrew / Aramaic, Greek, Syriac, Latin, Romanian, Armenian, etc.) but scholars working in all of these fields are welcome to apply.
