Patristikseminariet

Patristikseminariet vid Newmaninstitutet, som drivs i samverkan med Uppsala universitet, samlar forskare och studenter på högre nivå inom olika discipliner som är intresserade av frågor kring kristendomen i antiken och senantiken och angränsande ämnen. Även frågor om receptionen av patristisk litteratur och tanke under medeltid och nutid ingår i vårt syfte.

Seminariet sammanträder normalt på onsdagar kl. 16.15‒18.00 i sal 309B (”Hopkinssalen”), Newmaninstitutet, Slottsgränd 6, Uppsala.
