  Noviembre 3 -4, 2022 / November 3-4, 2022 Call for Papers - New Deadline: 19 August 2022 It is the purpose of this IVth Colloquium on Hagiography, convened by the Augustinian Library in Buenos Aires, to be able to reflect on the research in the hagiographic field referring to Saints, Blesseds and venerable ones who have given their testimony of holiness in the midst of the Blessed of the Gospel (Cf. Mt V, 3-12). Discourses on poverty, minorities and the exclusion of these for various reasons related to religion, gender, ethnic origin, health and life decisions, are highly cultivated nowadays. Following a path of scientific production that began a couple of decades ago, studies related to the social field, cultures, practices of writing and reading, ways of preaching, the practice of power and the hagiographic models, continue to enjoy a vitality from different disciplines, which contribute to the debate and generate the challenge of also providing a living contribution and

Call for papers Augustine and the Making of Christian Practice (400-1000) Durham, 23-24 March 2023

  Call for papers Augustine and the Making of Christian Practice (400-1000) Durham, 23-24 March 2023   This conference aims to contribute to the study of the rise of Christianity in North Africa, the Mediterranean and Western Europe in the first millenium, a wide-ranging and complex historical phenomenon. It will explore the role played by Augustine of Hippo (354-430), a north african bishop and major textual authority in the shaping of religious praxis in the West. It is generally agreed that Augustine was widely read and had a major influence in the diffusion of normative ideas and practices that impregnated Christianity for centuries up to this day, such as the doctrine of original sin and the necessity of infant baptism or the unicity of marriage. Because of the sheer size of Augustine’s literary production, however, the concrete means through which his ideas were diffused largely remain unexplored and require a long-term collective effort. In recent years, Augustine’s reception ha
