Seeking panelists for AHA 2019 panel of co-authored papers by scholars from different fields

For AHA 2019, we warmly welcome proposals of co-authored papers by scholars hailing from different fields, whether geographically, chronologically, or thematically defined. The panel aims to explore the methodological challenges and possibilities of scholars working across intra-disciplinary lines. For instance, our paper draws on our respective specializations in Eastern European political history and early US cultural history to examine Polish insurrectionists expatriated in the US in the 1830s and 1840s.

Re: Query about Roman teachings as reflected in Byzantine/Slavic polemics

I am not sure that the term "Catholic Christianity" is the most appropriate while dealing with 10th-Church history, particularly when it comes to Latin-Byzantine relationships. Granted, the monks who composed the Chronicle lived in a world where the wedge between Orthodoxy and Catholicism was a thing, but this wasn't necessarily the case when it comes to Vladimir's time: consciously or not, they projected their own religious convictions on to their clumsy historical overview.
As for the question on 1 Corinthians, I am afraid I can't be of much help. :-/
Best,

Re: Query about Roman teachings as reflected in Byzantine/Slavic polemics

From Dmitrii Dobrovolski, HSE Moscow:

Almost every Old Rusian anti-Latin polemic text deals with the problem of food restrictions allegedly misunderstood or misused by Catholics.
However, as far as I know, this very biblical quote wasn’t used in such a context anywhere but in the story of Vladimir’s conversion.
