A proposal for HERA was written (spring 2015), but without effort

Symposium What Did Deacons Do?, 22-23.9.2015 (Joensuu)

titleOne example can be seen here.

We are now editing a book about the two first centuries (WUNT).

We are planning a second volume, too.

This project needs cooperation of many writers, because of its volume. Now it is important to collect information about "status quo": what do we know now. This means: what do we know after the introduction of the new paradigm by John N. Collins. This phase may take some years. After that we can start to analyze deeper that material, which has not been analyzed yet.

  • find out those who have written / are writing about diakonia in the early church
  • collect a book/serie of books like Madigan-Osiek 2005 but about the deacons ("where something is written")
