Patristics Research Seminar

Convenors: Prof. Lewis Ayres (, Dr Krastu Banev (, Mr Clift Ward (
Meetings: Fortnightly on Thursdays (11-12.30pm)
in Seminar Room C (D/TH107), Dept. of Theology & Religion, Abbey House, DH1 3RS, Durham

Though intended for postgraduates (both MA and research) interested in Patristic and Byzantine studies, these seminars are open to anyone who is interested in the subjects discussed.

All seminars are held on Thursdays, 12:00-13:30, in the SCR Dining Room of Hatfield College. To get to Hatfield, from the department walk down Dun Cow Lane and then take a left onto N Bailey. Hatfield will be the first gated entrance that you come to on your right. Ask at the Porter’s Lodge for directions to the SCR Dining Room. Please note that we are not allowed to bring our own food into the Dining Room. However, everyone is invited to join us for lunch at San Marco across the street once the seminar concludes.

San Marco (now renamed Lebaneat, just opposite the college) are offering seminar participants a £5 meal deal which will include a wrap or pizza and a soft drink.

Although everyone is warmly invited to attend, let me stress that the aim of the seminar is to offer a special opportunity for graduate students in Patristics to hear and engage in a conversation with some of the main scholars in the field. I would like you to consider your participation in this seminar as an essential part of your graduate training.
