Call for Papers: Easter in Late Antiquity and the Middle Ages


We at Medievalists.net are teaming up with the journal After Constantine and the Orthodox Academy of Crete to host a one-day conference on Easter in Late Antiquity and the Middle Ages.

The conference will take place online through Zoom on April 1, 2023. The conference will examine how Easter was celebrated and viewed from Late Antiquity throughout the medieval period. Every year this would be a high point of Christian life, and medieval people were keenly interested in many aspects of this event.

We are looking for papers on a wide variety of topics, including:

  • The origins of its rituals
  • How different traditions developed throughout the world
  • How it impacted relations with other religious groups
  • How determining the date of Easter spurred learning in various subjects

Candidates are welcome to send their abstracts accompanied by a brief biographical note in English to the journal’s email ([email protected]) or to Medievalists.net ([email protected])

Deadline: December 31, 2022
