$100/conference and workshop; $25/workshop-only
This interdisciplinary and international conference will address the many ways and means by which Saint Ambrose constructed community:
- How did Saint Ambrose form a community, mold a particular sense of community, or reshape the understanding of an established community?
- How did he redefine what it meant to be Roman? Christian? Rich or Poor?
- How did he connect the Powerful and the People, the Sage and the Simple? Humans and the rest of creation?
- How did his sense of community engage the (so-called) pagan, the Jew, the heterodox, the barbarian?
