Constantine and the Grandeur that was Rome
Kellogg College, University of Oxford, December 11-13, 2013.
Date limite : 1er août 2013
The last few decades, and especially the last few years, have seen an important rise in scholarship on Constantine. Partly due to the 17th century anniversary of his conversion to Christianity in October 312, and the Edict of Milan in June 313, and partly due to the general progress of interdisciplinary scholarship in both Constantinian Studies, and Ancient History in general, this fresh research allows for a better grasp and deeper understanding of the life, decisions, and influence of Constantine on the development of Christianity and Western world. Yet, we are still far from a full understanding of the scope and impact of the many actions and decisions of the first Christian Roman Emperor.
This conference aims to bring together scholars with an interdisciplinary focus, aiming at a better understanding and/or deeper clarification of events and contexts from various academic (sub-)disciplines, such as, but not limited to, religion, theology, architecture, art history, law, sociology, anthropology, and philology. Presentations may focus on any area of research, for example on the Roman history and events leading up to the reign of Constantine, on Constantine's life and government, and/or the impact of his decisions, with a particular focus on the innovative and interdisciplinary aspects of academic research.
