AbstractThis session offers a closer insight into the intricate links between language and religion. Marta Szada will show that, counterintuitively, the Nicenes ('Catholics') hardly noticed the linguistic distinctiveness of 'Gothic' Homoianism and did not refer to it in polemical discussions. Nor did the Homoians feel the need to cultivate their special attachment to Gothic religious language as a sign of their opposition to Nicene doctrine and practice. Milena Joksimović discusses correlations between Christian sexual morality and wording used to describe male and female adultery.
