Professor Michel Libambu, a fellow of the CEAC, has been invited to participate in an international conference on Patristics in the 21st Century, which is being organized to mark the 50th Anniversary of the Association Internationale d’Etudes Patristiques/International Association of Patristics Studies.

The conference is being organized jointly by AIEP/IAPS and the Center for the Study of Christianity in the Hebrew University of Jerusalem,  and will take place in Jerusalem from 25th-27th of June 2013.

Professor Libambu has been invited to give a plenary lecture on the first day,  on the state of  Patristics in Africa. This would involve a 40 minute lecture followed by discussion.

Professor Libambu had previously given a presentation on Augustine at the International Patristics Soceity Meeting in Oxford, UK. He was sponsored by the CEAC. We are glad to see that he has been invited to speak and look forward to further dialog with the patristics society and our work in Africa.
