The God/Trinity Topic Session invites proposals that address the trinitarian theology of St. Augustine of Hippo. Papers are especially welcome that 1) address the interrelation of Trinity and conversion in Augustine’s thought, or offer a comparison of the interrelation of Trinity and conversion in Augustine and contemporary systematicians, such as Walter Cardinal Kasper. 2) In light of the recent increase in secondary literature on Augustine, we are also encouraging papers that engage this secondary literature, especially Lewis Ayres’ Augustine and the Trinity (CUP: 2010), either through an historical or a systematic theological approach. 3) We would also welcome other proposals exploring original ideas on the theme.
Proposals should be between 200-500 words and include the author’s name, institution and contact information. Deadline for submission is September 1, 2012. Notification of acceptance for presentation will be given by September 21, 2012. A maximum of three papers will be selected for the session. Please articulate in the proposal any audio-visual support required. Recall that CTSA policy limits presenters to one speaking role on the convention program. Please send proposals to Papanikolaou@fordham.edu.
