კონფერენცია: ენა და კულტურა ადრეულ ქრისტიანულ ეპოქაში

    Proposals for papers, preferably in English or French, counting between 600 and

    background, and the sociohistorical setting of Early Christian approaches to
    language(s). Possible topics to be treated in connection with linguistic ideas are: the
    role of the Greek, Syriac, and Coptic philosophical and theological traditions; the role
    of the Jewish tradition of textual study of the Old Testament; the role of apocryphal
    writings; first-hand knowledge of, or second-hand information on languages other
    than Greek or Latin; the impact of key players, intellectual networks, and
