We would like to invite you to take part in the interdisciplinary international conference organized by the Institute of Slavic Studies at the Polish Academy of Sciences, the Institute for Literature at the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences and the Cyrillo-Methodian Research Centre at the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences: Boundaries and Frontiers in South Slavic Cultures: the City and the Biblical Tradition, Sofia, 3th–5th of October 2019.
The 20th volume of the journal Slavia Meridionalis will be devoted to the relationship between intellectuals and the religious. The main focus of our attention are South Slavic cultures, we are nevertheless also interested in the West Slavic context, as both these areas have, to some extent, been subjected to common historical and political processes. Until the First World War, it was an affiliation to one monarchy with state religious policy, and after the Second World War – being included in the orbit of communist influence with a policy towards religion, which although in principle uniform, was inevitably nuanced by local traditions, social attitudes, and models of religiosity.
