Reading Protestant Authors in Transylvania and Its Neighbouring Territories

The Lucian Blaga Central University Library, Cluj-Napoca (Romania) announces a two-day conference entitled Reading Protestant Authors in Transylvania and Neighbouring Territories (16th-18th century) on 30-31 March 2017. Paper proposals are welcome.

The conference proposes to map the most important readings of readers from Transylvania and the neighbouring territories (Partium in the broadest sense and the Romanian Principalities) in the field of religious movements of the 16th-18th century (such as the early Reformation, Antitrinitarianism, Irenism, Puritanism, Pietism) in an attempt to place the 16th century Reformation understood in a restricted sense into a long narrative.

Papers, Books, and Coffee

The first paper by Andrew Mayes of Dublin was super interesting- examining Joseph as an anti-hero and attempting to place the Joseph story in its historical context.  The book exhibit opened, and we had coffee and tea too.  So far, so good.

A Full Day Ahead…

And I still feel pretty wretched.  Coughing, headache, blah.  And to compound the fun, there was no hot water in the shower this morning.  Still, there are papers to hear and books to see and photos to snap.

More anon.  If I make it.
