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
