Abstract

Despite the context of political fragmentation, late antique Christian thinkers envisaged a universal, united church. This session, the third of the four proposed, explores how intellectuals used past social networks as a rhetorical device to discuss ideas of orthodoxy, political ideology, gender, and intellectual affiliation.
