  4. “Early Christian Mystagogy & the Body”: Conference & Call for Papers

    The Third International Congress on Early Christian Mystagogy and the Body, organized by the Netherlands Centre for Patristic Research, will be held in Utrecht, 30 August-1 September 2017.

    Mystagogy is a more or less formal process of initiation by ritual, sacramental, and didactic means into a continuously and intimately felt presence of a mystery that is regarded as transforming one’s personal life. In the early Christian period, two older traditions about human physicality influenced the Church’s vision and development of the process of initiation into the Christian faith.
