Requirements for Participation

Development of Early Christian Theology

Program Unit Type: Section
Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: For 2014 we seek papers for multiple sessions that contribute to the growing reassessment of the development of early Christian theologies of the Spirit. In particular, we seek papers that explore how early Christians described the role of the Spirit in creation, early Christian attempts to account for the Spirit's divinity, how early Christians appropriated the Spirit in Biblical exegesis and reading, early Christian exegesis of key "Spirit" texts in the early Church, and early Christian attempts to describe a taxonomy of Father, Son and Spirit that distinguishes the Father from the Son. Priority will be given to papers that offer new approaches to these important themes.
