The seventh St Andrew’s Patristic Symposium focuses on the personality, contributions and legacy of Saint John Chrysostom.

Given the traditional interdisciplinary nature of our symposia, the conveners welcome proposals on the main theme and related or unrelated topics pertaining to patristic tradition. All approaches, from theological to philological, from hermeneutical to ethical, from pastoral to exegetical, from historical to spiritual etc., are welcome. Abstracts of up to 200 words should be sent to Doru Costache at, by the end of May 2016. The abstracts should be accompanied by brief biographical notes, mainly detailing the qualifications and affiliations of the contributors.

Two bursaries of $500 (each) will be available for Australian postgraduate students not based in NSW, generously offered by Australian Research Theology Foundation Inc. To win a bursary, postgraduate students should send their papers in full-length to Doru Costache at by the end of May 2016. The papers should not exceed 3,000 words, including footnotes. The winners of the two bursaries will be announced by the end of June 2016.
