This volume presents the Proceedings of the International Study Congress on ‘Chromatius of Aquileia and his Age’, which took place in Aquileia from 22 to 24 May 2008, under the direction of Pier Franco Beatrice (Università degli Studi di Padova – University of Padua) and Alessio Peršič (Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore – Catholic University of the Sacred Heart Milan) and under the initiative of the ‘National Committee for the 16th centenary anniversary of the death of Saint Chromatius, bishop of Aquileia’. The event stemmed from the passionate interest traditionally shown by Christianity for its Christian origins, inherited from the one-thousand-year-plus tradition of the Patriarchate of Aquileia. The Conference gathered together scholars from Europe and America who are qualified in Chromatius’ work, only recently saved from the anonymity in which it was steeped, being in the handwritten tradition. In this way, the Congress wanted to contribute in an original way and at an international level to increasing the literary historiography of Aquileia (in particular at the time of Chromatius), which had and continues to have valued enthusiasts in Friuli, but which does not always seem to be as practised and known as it deserves to be elsewhere.

Williams (San Francisco), Michaela Zelzer (Wien), Jean Marie Auwers (Louvain-la-Neuve), Agnès Bastit-Kalinowska (Metz), Celestino Corsato (Padova), Philip Rousseau (Washington), Józef Naumowicz (Warszawa), Francesco Pieri (Bologna), Carla Lo Cicero (Roma), Giuseppe Peressotti (Udine), Rémi Gounelle (Strasbourg), Alberto Cozzi (Milano), Françoise Thelamon (Rouen), Mark Humphries (Maynooth), Robert Godding (Bruxeles), Pier Franco Beatrice (Padova), Alessio Peršič (Milano).

Il volume intende raccogliere gli Atti del Convegno Internazionale di Studi «Cromazio di Aquileia e il suo tempo - Chromatius of Aquileia and his Age», svoltosi ad Aquileia dal 22 al 24 maggio 2008, sotto la direzione di Pier Franco Beatrice (Università degli Studi di Padova) e Alessio Peršič (Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore, Milano) e per iniziativa del «Comitato Nazionale per il XVI centenario della morte di San Cromazio vescovo di Aquileia». L’evento congressuale è scaturito dall’appassionato interesse tradizionalmente rivolto alle proprie origini cristiane dalle cristianità eredi della tradizione ultramillenaria del Patriarcato di Aquileia. Il Convegno ha radunato da Europa e America studiosi qualificati dell’opera cromaziana, ancor solo di recente sottratta all’anonimato in cui versava nella tradizione manoscritta, intendendo così contribuire originalmente a livello internazionale all’incremento della storiografia letteraria aquileiese (cromaziana inparticolare), che in Friuli ha avuto e continua ad avere validi cultori, ma che non sempre appare praticata e conosciuta altrove come merita.
