Plague, illness and death in the early Christianity - call for papers for patristic journal "Vox Patrum"
Plague, illness and death in the early Christianity - call for papers for patristic journal "Vox Patrum" We are still faced with the difficulties of the COVID19 pandemic and everything that goes with it – disease, loneliness, lockdown, confusion and death. In fact, in the history of Christianity there have been many plagues and epidemics that have repeatedly caused confusion, destruction and death. In the face of contemporary problems, we would like to look at how early Christian writers, theologians, historians of the Church and pastors referred to them, and whether and how they were reflected in theology, in literary works, in everyday pastoral practice and in early Christian art. We would like to find in early Christianity a model for thinking, relating and dealing with epidemics, disease and death. Therefore, the editors of the patristic journal "Vox Patrum", published since 1981 by the John Paul II Catholic University of Lublin, Poland, invites the researchers on Christian antiquity to submit texts on the proposed topic. Please submit proposals by February 15, 2021 via the website https://czasopisma.kul.pl/vp/ All texts will be reviewed and published in 2021.
