International Workshop "The Apocryphal Acts of the Apostles in Late Antiquity: Tradition and Innovation"
As our research focusses on the different roles and functions of extra-canonical traditions (mainly) after the closure of the New Testament canon, the planned workshop will pay particular attention to Extracanonical Apostle Narratives (and related writings like hagiographical stories about the origins of a regional church etc.), their use of older traditions, their development (including the development of new texts) and their different functions in the life of post-Constantinian communities. We are especially interested in the relations between texts, rituals/liturgies, spaces
and material culture.
The planned workshop „The Apocryphal Acts of the Apostles in Late Antiquity: Tradition and Innovation” will take place from 28th - 30th November 2019 at the Centre for Advanced Studies "Beyond Canon_" at the University of Regensburg.
