We welcome paper proposals (presentation duration: 20 minutes) on Maximus the Confessor’s thought, work and relevance to any area of Philosophy by scholars in Philosophy, Byzantine Studies, Theology and related disciplines. Papers may examine the relationship of Maximus’ thought to that of other thinkers, but the paper must focus on Maximus the Confessor’s contribution. All papers must be presented in English.
Please send us the title and a short abstract of your presentation (200-400 words) in English, along with a short CV, until Sunday, May 11, 2014 via e-mail to maximus2014berlin [ at ] gmail.com.
