The aim of this Workshop is to bring together in Oslo scholars at an early career stage (PhD Candidates, postdocs or similar) for presenting papers on the encounter between Platonism and Christian thought in Late Antiquity.

The influence of Platonism on Early Christian thought is acknowledged to have been profound. Numerous studies have brought new knowledge both about Platonic ontology and ethics as well as on Christian metaphysics and anthropology, demonstrating how a number of Early Christian writers engaged with Platonism in their endeavours to deepen and systematize the Christian doctrine and faith.

Over the past three decades, the Department of Philosophy at the University of Oslo has become a pioneer in the research on the History of Philosophy. The study of Neoplatonism and Christian thought has been a distinct research activity of a larger group of researchers in ancient philosophy, consisting of internationally renowned scholars, senior researchers, and PhD students.

With this Call for Papers we invite abstracts for papers from PhD students, postdocs and early career researchers, on any topic focusing on Platonism and Christianity in Late Antiquity. We encourage interdisciplinary approaches; we welcome proposals within philosophy, patristics and the history of Late Antiquity. Although proposals on any aspect of this research field are welcome, preference may be given to papers on the following topics:

I. Porphyry of Tyre and Christianity

II. The question on Evil in Late Antiquity

III. Augustine and Christian Platonism in imperial Milan

IV. Apophaticism in Greek thought

The Workshop is promoted by the Society for Ancient Philosophy at UiO.
