Welcome to the homepage of the Hungarian Patristic Society!
The Society was founded on 22nd June 2001 in Kecskemét, by
53 participants of the “First Hungarian Conference on Ancient Christianity.”
According to the constitution, the goal of the Society is “to promote
academic research into the doctrine of the Church Fathers, and in general in
the history, literary and material culture of Ancient Christianity, and to
publicise the knowledge before a wider general public. The scope of the
activities involves the study of the early Christian church, and its social
history, theology and philosophy, liturgy, art, literature and music,
inquiry in the relations of ancient Christianity to other religions, in its
aftermath and history of reception. The Society aims at coordinating
research performed in the fields named above and offers an academic forum
for them. Its prominent goal is to make known the work of Christian writers
of Antiquity through translations of a high standard.”
