This workshop is held in connection with the preparation of the Brill Encyclopedia of Early Christianity, edited by David G. Hunter, Bert Jan Lietaert Peerbolte, and Paul van Geest. The aim of the workshop is to provide an opportunity for preliminary discussion of a volume of essays on patristic reception.  All of the speakers below have confirmed their titles and willingness to participate, except for #7.  If Professor Faber does not confirm, we will find another speaker to address reception in the Reformation period.
