The conference theme "Authority - Tradition - Originality" offers an opportunity to evaluate the interpretation of works of art, historical, literary and religious documents or other creative human activities from authoritative, traditional or genuinely original positions. The conference theme also welcomes the interpretation of human creative activity as well as the interpretation of its results formed and realised under the pressure of authority or tradition or with a completely original and independent approach. These three variables, authority, tradition, originality, certainly influenced the social environment of human creation or the function of the work created. The themes of authority and the relationship of tradition and originality play an important role also in theological discourse, both in the field of systematic and historical theology as well as in biblical studies.
