ACADEMIC CONFERENCE

28th November 2020

DOCTORS OF THE SOULS, THEOLOGIANS OF THE SPIRIT

Our conference aims to explore evangelical-Puritan spirituality, which is little known in Poland, as well as its underestimated influence on the shaping of the evangelical, revival and Pentecostal movements.


We invite anyone interested in the history of Calvinism and the theology of the spiritual-intellectual life of revival movements.

SPEAKERS

The Puritans were excellently educated at the best European universities of their time. They were experts in ancient languages and literature, the writings of the Church Fathers, and the achievements of the Reformation. At the same time, they wanted theology to be, above all, practical and easy to understand. When William Perkins, the "prince" of Puritan thinkers, wrote that "theology is the science of living blessedly forever," he perfectly grasped its unique character. According to the Puritans, the science of God had to be applied in everyday life and related to human spirituality, duty and happiness. They were nicknamed "the doctors of human souls and consciences" for a reason.
