Early Christianity is a novel topic to much of Taiwanese academia, albeit deeply rooted in the western academic sphere. Just as awareness and understanding builds so there are unique modern challenges, under the potential threat of the age of digitalization.  This  conference will explore the nature, scope and potential solutions to such challenges.

The conference is invited to inquire into the following questions:

1. The influence of digitalisation on society

2. The impact of digitalisation on Christianity in society

3. The digitalisation of society as a way to transhumanism

4. Christian theological views and philosophical insights on digitalisation and virtualisation in a society

5. The application of the interpretation of early Christianity to digitalisation

6.The philosophy of early Christianity

7. Ancient Greek philosophy in early Christian theology

8. From Platonic theology to Angustinian theology

9. Ancient Greek philosophy in modern society
