The contributions to the symposium can be dedicated to various topics. The following survey presents some possible themes, but does not intend to exclude alternative issues or approaches: the effect of Imperial intervention/political aspects of the Donatist leadership, the development of Augustine’s theology through the controversy, theological content in the African councils (sacramentology, ecclesiology, martyrology, Christology), the role of authority and tradition in the controversy, the role of leading personalities in the controversy, the bible in Africa, rhetorical analysis of polemical literature, textual-critical studies of the sources, archaeological findings and African liturgy, and the later history of Donatism and its reception in early-modern controversies. Each contribution is supposed to include a general, methodological conclusion which would enable perspectives for further research.
