The Presbyters in the Late Antique West is a 5-years project, run at the University of Warsaw and investigating the role of the middle clergy in the Church and society. Our team has been collecting the evidence concerning clerics within a searchable database, still under construction, but accessible on-line: http://presbytersproject.ihuw.pl/ (username: editor, password: editor123!). The project is slowly coming to its end, and we are organising the closing conference “Clerics in Church and society up to AD 700”. The conference will take place in Warsaw, on 26-27 April 2019. The word ‘clerics’ include bishops, but our main interest lies in the presbyters, deacons, and subdeacons etc. We are aiming to achieve a broad picture of their ecclesiastical, economic, and social activity. Among confirmed speakers are: Geoffrey Dunn, Uta Heil, David Hunter, Dominic Moreau, David Natal and Eric Rebillard.
Those interested in presenting papers are requested to send a title and short abstract (c. 100 words) to Stanisław Adamiak (firstname.lastname@example.org) by 30 September 2018.
There is no registration fee, but please, note we won’t be able to cover travel and accommodation expenses.
