Le prochain colloque de Patristique et d’Histoire ancienne, consacré aux « Pères de l’Eglise et l’exercice du pouvoir », se tiendra à la Faculté de Droit de La Rochelle, du 6 au 8 septembre 2013. S’inscrivant dans la suite de l’édit de Galère (311) qui accordait aux chrétiens le droit de pratiquer leur religion, les décisions prises à Milan par les empereurs Constantin et Licinius en février 313 allaient en modifier le sens de façon déterminante tant pour l’Empire que pour l’Eglise. Plutôt que de reprendre à l’occasion de ce dix-septième centenaire de l’« Edit de Milan », le dossier si souvent traité des rapports entre Eglise et Etat, c’est l’impact même de cette transformation au sein de l’Eglise que ce VIe colloque de La Rochelle se propose de considérer à nouveaux frais à l’échelle de l’Antiquité tardive.
