Zoomseminars: What Did Deacons Do?
Since 2014 the School of Theology (University of Eastern Finland) regularly organizes international and ecumenical research conferences. The proceedings of the last conference are published in Deacons and Diakonia in Early Christianity: the First Two Centuries edited by Bart J. Koet, Esko Ryökäs, and Edwina Murphy (Tübingen, 2018).
