We are still faced with the difficulties of the COVID19 pandemic and everything that goes with it – disease, loneliness, lockdown, confusion and death. In fact, in the history of Christianity there have been many times plagues and epidemics that have repeatedly caused confusion, destruction and death. In the face of contemporary problems, we would like to look at how early Christian writers, theologians, historians of the Church and pastors referred to them, and whether and how they were reflected in theology, in literary works, in everyday pastoral practice and in early Christian art. We would like to find in early Christianity a model for thinking, relating and dealing with epidemics, disease and death. Therefore, the editors of Vox Patrum invite the researchers on Christian antiquity to submit texts on the proposed topic.
Please submit texts by February 15, 2021 via the website www.voxpatrum.pl

Very soon just on July 15 next volume of "Vox Patrum" will be released. This time - as it was announced - it will be offered as Festschrift to Rev. Prof. Antoni Swoboda. The ceremonial handing over of the volume will take place during the Polish patrologists' meeting at Wigry in September this year. The prepared volume contains many changes and novelties that, we hope, will be helpful and will be welcomed with a friendly acceptance. However, this is not the end of the changes regarding "Vox Patrum"! The most serious and the most demanding challenges are waiting for us in 2020, when, according to the journal's development program, we will move to the quarterly system of publishing "Vox Patrum". Therefore, we encourage all to submit their texts for publication next year. Quarterly publishing will involve reducing the volume of individual issue to around 10 articles.
