5th British Patristics Conference

Now that the deadline for abstract submission has passed - we have over 60 contributions accepted that range from earliest Christian writings down to the reception of Patristic literature in the Medieval period. King's College who is this year's host is pleased about the strong list of applications for the conference and - together with those who participate without giving papers - the conference will be almost 100 people strong. It shows that Patristic studies are thriving in the UK and beyond.

Invited speakers for our conferences are Professor Joan Taylor (King's College London) who is giving the opening lecture on "The Empress Helena and the Mystery of the 'True Cross'". The evening lecture will be given by Jörg Rüpke (Max-Weber-Kolleg, Erfurt University, Germany) who is going to speak about "Ancient Lived Religion and Patristics".
