During its whole history, from the Medieval Ages to the contemporary times, the Order of Preachers has engaged the civil authority, both on the local and international level. There have been times of both close cooperation as well as harsh conflicts between them.
Considering such complex affairs, the editorial board has chosen to give volume 3 (2018) of the Archivum Fratrum Praedicatorum, Nova Series, monographic character on the topic; Dominicans and Civil Authority. We will be pleased to evaluate original contributions dealing with the proposed subject considering different perspectives and situations.
Theoretical reflections of the members of the Order shall be compared with the real facts in local contexts, on the level of individual provinces or priories as well as on the national and international level. The objective is to put together a volume which would offer the best possible overview of an aspect of the history of the Dominican Order which has been little investigated until now.
Interested scholars are invited to submit by end of April 2017 an abstract of an article they intend to write (200-250 words). The selected topics ideal for publication shall be submitted by end of 2017 through the email address firstname.lastname@example.org; they shall not exceed 45,000 characters (excluding footnotes). The articles will be submitted for peer review.
