Prof. Erik De Boer
The University of the Free State (UFS) has appointed Prof. Erik De Boer as Extraordinary Professor in Patristics (the study of the early church and the church fathers, as well as their writings and theology).

Prof. De Boer will work in collaboration with Prof. Dolf Britz, Head of the Division: Programme Design and Director of the Jonathan Edwards Centre in the Institute for Classical en Reformatory Studies at the UFS. The objective of the institute is to train young ministers of religion and researchers in Africa in the field of Patristics. The university also has partners in Lesotho, Botswana, Namibia and Zambia.

According to Prof. De Boer, this discipline is regarded of great importance for the development of theology in Southern Africa.

Currently he is, amongst others, a lecturer in Classical Languages at the Theological University of Kampen and Extraordinary Professor in Reformation History at the Vrije Universiteit in Amsterdam.

He will deliver his inaugural lecture in August 2010 at the UFS.
