Here is the announcement to the left. And below is the full description of the program.

  • Theodore the Studite and Post-Chalcedonian Christologies

  • Repentance, Reconciliation, and Confession in the Fathers

  • The Divine Liturgy Celebrated and Interpreted in the Patristic Period

I will be taking the two readings of Theodore the Studite and Post-Chalcedon Christologies and Patristic (Meta) Ethic. I will join other scholar and students on the campus for the week and so will have the advantage of those conversations that come my way that enrich and offer new avenues to explore.

The Pappas Institute offers the Summer Patristic Studies Program, a Fall conference and a Spring conference for graduate students to present papers on their research.
