Patristikseminariet

Patristikseminariet vid Newmaninstitutet drivs i samverkan med Uppsala universitet. Seminariet samlar forskare och studenter på högre nivå inom olika discipliner som är intresserade av frågor kring kristendomen i antiken/senantiken och angränsande ämnen. Här behandlas också frågor om receptionen av patristisk litteratur och dess tankegångar under medeltid och nutid.

Seminariet sammanträder på onsdagar kl. 16.00–18.00 via Zoom. Se detaljer nedan.

Kontaktperson: Barbara Crostini

Instructions

Paper presentation and discussion will be from 4–5:30 pm. A Greek reading group continues after the seminar from 5:30 onwards. We are reading some LXX psalms and exegetical homilies about them.

You may participate in one or other parts, or both, depending on your commitments on a particular day.

I will send Zoom links to those who indicate they wish to participate. We are always open to suggestions for new members to join the seminar.

If you would like to give a paper, please let me know.
