Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin - IOSOT 2025

25th Congress of the International Organization for the Study of the Old Testament: Berlin, 11–15 August 2025

The Faculty of Theology at the Humboldt-University of Berlin is honored to host the 25th congress of the International Organization for the Study of the Old Testament (IOSOT), which is scheduled for August 11–15, 2025. In conjunction with this meeting, Berlin will also be hosting the congresses of the International Organization for Masoretic Studies (IOMS), the International Organization for Septuagint and Cognate Studies (IOSCS), the International Organization for Qumran Studies (IOQS), and the International Organization for Vulgate Studies (IOVS).

IOSOT is dedicated to academic excellence and diversity. The congress is open to all who are interested in the scientific study of the Hebrew Bible/Old Testament and adjacent fields. Papers can and will be held in English, German, or French.

The congress is organized by the local committee in Berlin, and the program has been discussed by the IOSOT board which is identical to the Vetus Testamentum editorial board. The current secretary general of IOSOT is Professor Annette Schellenberg from the University of Vienna, Austria.

We are looking forward to welcoming you in Berlin!
