The Eighth Saint Anselm Conference:
Saint Anselm and the Teaching of Nicea

April 3-5, 2025
Saint Anselm College
Manchester, New Hampshire

Plenary Speaker:
Thomas J. McKenna
Concord University

The Eighth Saint Anselm Conference is dedicated to the foundational teaching of Nicea, the first
of the great ecumenical councils, in anticipation of its 1700 th anniversary in June, 2025. Papers
are invited on the treatment of the divine substance, as well as its relevance to Christology, in the
work of Anselm, his predecessors and his successors. Further, in view of his defense of the
filioque clause at the Council of Bari, papers are welcome that focus on this point in Anselm, and
on the Holy Spirit in the patristic and medieval tradition. Finally, papers on other aspects of
Anselm’s thought are also of interest.

Please send an abstract of 100-200 words to [email protected] by January 15, 2025.
Proposals for panels with up to three papers are also welcome. The plenary lecture will be on
Friday evening. Panel sessions will be on Friday and Saturday. Selected papers will be published
in The Saint Anselm Journal, or possibly in a volume of proceedings.
