The following survey offers some possible topics, but does not intend to exclude alternative issues or approaches:
(1) The transmission and reception of Augustine's sermons
(2) Augustine's argumentation (doctrine, exegesis and rhetoric)
(3) Political doctrine(s) and praxis in Latin Patristic sermons
Committed keynote speakers and respondents include: Isabelle Bochet, Johannes Brachtendorf, James Patout Burns, Gillian Clarke, Jérémy Delmulle, Max Diesenberger, François Dolbeau, Marie Pauliat, Els Rose, Clemens Weidmann.

We will let you know whether your paper is included by 1 July 2019. All participants are kindly invited to announce the definitive title of their lecture and a short abstract before 31 December 2019. Lectures should be approx. 20 minutes long, followed by a general discussion of 10 minutes. The organizing committee has the intention of publishing the contributions to the conference as quickly as possible in the international series Instrumenta Patristica et Mediaevalia, published by Brepols Publishers.
The colloquium will take place in Leuven at the historical location of the Dutch College (Hollands College), where Cornelius Jansenius served as first president, and the historical Park Abbey, where Erasmus discovered Lorenzo Valla's New Testament Notes.
