This volume contains the proceedings of the conference “Ministerium Sermonis. An International Colloquium on North African Patristic Sermons” (Malta, 8-10 April 2015) and hopes to give a new impetus to the study of late antique African preaching. Several contributions challenge accepted views regarding the corpus of North African homilies as well as common assumptions concerning supposedly North African sermon collections. Other contributions offer detailed philological, theological and rhetorical text analyses, and focus on the sermons of Augustine as well as on Donatist preaching and the corpus of Pseudo-Fulgentius. The present volume may be considered a sequel to the proceedings of the first two Ministerium Sermonis conferences (Leuven - Turnhout, 2008 and Rome, 2011), which have been published in the same series.
The editors are members of the research units "History of Church and Theology" and "Literary Studies: Latin Literature" of KU Leuven.
