Practical information

The first Nordic Patristics Meeting was held at Lund University in 1981 on the initiative of the famous Swedish church historian Per Beskow. Since that time it has been organized roughly every fourth year until today, each time at Lund University. This time it will be organized by the University of Oslo at Lysebu with support from the Danish-Norwegian Cooperation Fund.

There is a limited number of places available for a highly reasonable fee, thanks to the generous funding from the Danish-Norwegian Cooperation Fund. NOK 2000,- will cover accommodation at Lysebu and all meals during the meeting August 13-15.
