Loyola Research Colloquium on Patristic Translation
The first “Loyola Research Colloquium on Patristic Translation” will be held Monday - Wednesday, May 27 – 29, at Loyola’s Lake Shore Campus in Cuneo Hall 425. On Monday, May 27, a team of scholars under the guidance of Loyola's Andrew Radde-Gallwitz will come together to discuss issues related to a series of translations (w/ commentary, etc.) of Patristic texts to be published with Cambridge University Press. This will be followed on Tuesday and Wednesday, May 28 and 29, by a series of public lectures and conversations. Two distinguished Italian scholars – Lorenzo Perrone and Emanuela Prinzivalli –will join us to discuss the recent discovery of 29 complete homilies of Origen in Greek, most of them unknown before (and all of them commenting on biblical passages). In addition, the American scholar Ronald Heine will present a lecture on the figure of Origen. Please note that there will be a special opportunity for our graduate students to interact with all of our guests in the closing session on Wednesday morning May 29. All are welcome to attend the Tuesday and Wednesday sessions; Monday's session is by invitation only.
