Since 1975, the Canadian Society of Patristic Studies has existed to promote and contibute to the academic study in Canada of the "church fathers". The society meets annually as part of the Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences, which is held at a different Canadian university each year. Membership is open to all who share the objectives of the Society. University faculty, students, and private scholars who work in the field are particularly encouraged to join. There is a fee for membership, which normally includes a subscription to the journal Sciences Religieuses/Studies in Religion.

The Canadian Society of Patristic Studies / L'Association Canadienne des Études Patristiques principal goal is to foster scholarship dealing with ancient Christianity and the Church Fathers from the period between ca. 100 and 750 C.E.

During our 2018 annual meeting (May 27 - 29), we will be holding sessions on a wide variety of topics that cover early Christian thought, theology, text reception, as well as other historical and cultural issues.
