Oxford Patristic & Byzantine Study Week, Wolfson College, Oxford, July 3–8, 2015
The aim of this study week is to explore the convergence between Patristic and Byzantine Studies in modern scholarship. It comprises lectures by eminent personalities in the fields of Patristic, Byzantine and Syriac Studies, seminars/reading classes, discussions, guided tours in Oxford colleges and libraries, cultural events and dialogues between artists, scholars and the wider public on sacred art, history and spirituality.
Although Patristic and Byzantine studies overlap to a certain extend, they are approached very often as distinct areas with distinct methodologies. The main point of this study week is to emphasize the need of interdisciplinarity between Patristic and Byzantine studies.
