British Patristics Conference underway today

The 5th British Patristics conference is beginning today in London, and it runs until Friday.  There is a great mass of interesting papers on offer.

Unfortunately I am unable to attend.  I wish that I was there, and I booked back in January.  But a virus has laid me low since Saturday – undoubtedly acquired on the aircraft back from Rome a week earlier.

I hope that perhaps some other attendees will post accounts of the event.  These conferences are uniformly excellent.

  1. Oh, that’s unfortunate. I hope you feel better soon.

    On the bright side, you must be doing okay if God is giving you these opportunities to offer it up to Him!

  2. Yeah, me too. But even though I’m undergoing a mild spiritual workout, what with being under the weather and out of a job, I can’t help but compare it to the rather more strenous test provided to a lot of us Christians in Iraq and Syria. So I can’t really complain.

    Btw, I did finally get Bede’s On the Valiant Woman done and corrected and up on Amazon, and shortly it will be up on Createspace.

    Where do all those typos and formatting errors hide? Why are footnotes so weird?

  3. That’s a very good way to look at it. But of course it’s still a very serious business to us.

    Well done with Bede! 🙂 Do you have a link?

    I have every sympathy re: typos etc. There comes a point at which we can’t see the text any more. 🙁

  4. Here is “On the Valiant Woman” on Kindle.

    They are sending me physical proofs for the Createspace edition, which suits my paranoia.

    Stuff to know:

    1. Amazon wants all Kindle edition notes, footnotes and endnotes to be live linked now, so that people can click on them and then click back to their place. There are some exceptions, but it’s a reasonable demand with all the tablets and phones out there. Time-consuming, mind you.

    2. I found something like a hundred more scriptural citations in Bede’s text than what the critical edition had, and a fair number of patristic quotes plus a Seneca. I probably overdid it, but I probably still missed some important bits.
