Conference Details : This ten-day summer school examines the dynamics of the interrelation of the political and the various ecclesiastical theories from the first century until the turning point which arrived with emperor Justinian. The course focuses on the theoretical aspects, which had been often neglected in the accounts of the political history of this period, thus providing the students with new research tools. It is primarily addressed to MA and PhD students interested in Late Antique political thought and Patristic Studies, since it will take place two years after the Oxford Patristic Conference 19-24 August 2019, the most significant scholarly event of Patristic Studies, organized every four years, but inaccessible to MA and PhD students despite its importance. The source persons are distinguished international scholars working on philosophy, the social and political history of Late Antiquity, Patristic, canon law, liturgy and monasticism. The course, either on-site or online in case the COVID-19 pandemic still requires it would represent a unique opportunity of examining a problem which has always been highly challenging in the following centuries up to the present, in every region where Christianity spread, from a multidimensional perspective. The summer school will consist of ten days of seminars, workshops and if the pandemic situation permits visits to the National History Museum of Budapest and Aquincum or in Pécs to the early Christian cemeteries.
