The Workshop on Late Antiquity and Byzantium, in collaboration with the Medieval Studies Workshop, is pleased to announce our next meeting:
Did Isidore of Seville write on Acolytes?
Some reflections on his Epistola ad Leudefredum
and his De Ecclesiasticis Officiis
Prof. Thomas Deswarte
University of Angers
Acolytes, an early ecclesiastical order, are mentioned in both Isidore of Seville’s De Ecclesiasticis Officiis as well as his possibly spurious Letter to Bishop Leudefredus of Cordoba. Through new philological, linguistic, and historical approaches to these treatises, this paper aims to prove the authenticity of the DEO’s chapter on acolytes, as well as that of Isidore’s letter to Leudefredus.
Tuesday, May 16 — 4:30 pm in CWAC 156
We look forward to seeing you there!
