Samuel Rubenson: Early Monastic Paideia

This workshop presents and discusses the results of the research program “Early Monasticism and Classical Paideia” at Lund University, Sweden. Against a tradition of regarding early monasticism as a break with classical paideia the contributors present a radical rethinking of education and literary production in early monasticism. From a variety of aspects and based on a wide spectrum of sources the contributions discuss the background and character of early monastic paideia with an emphasis on Egypt and Palestine.
