The Eastern Great Lakes Biblical Society (EGLBS) is a learned society of scholars of the Bible, cognate literature, and Ancient Near Eastern archaeology & culture. EGLBS fosters scientific study of the biblical materials in their historical-cultural contexts and facilitates scholarly exchange among individuals of various faith traditions who share a mutual interest in the critical investigation of the Bible and its influences. Founded in 1970 by members of the Catholic Biblical Association (CBA) and the Society of Biblical Literature (SBL), and soon joined by members of the American Schools of Oriental Research (ASOR), EGLBS is the oldest ecumenical regional association in the area of biblical studies. We invite you to add your voice to this scholarly exchange.
