Οικολογία και Χριστιανική Παράδοση

Η πρώτη συνεδριακή ημερίδα του Ινστιτούτου Ορθόδοξων Χριστιανικών Σπουδών στο Κέϊμπριτζ για το 2018, θα πραγματοποιηθεί στις 17 μαρτίου στο Wesley House, Jesus Lane, Cambridge CB5 8BJ. Το γενικό θέμα θα είναι: «Working salvation in the midst of the earth: Ecology and Christian tradition».

The two featured speakers in conversation are Dr Elizabeth Theokritoff (Research Associate, IOCS) and Dr Rebecca Watson (Research Associate, The Faraday Institute for Science and Religion).  All are welcome to attend.

The programme of our 17 March Conversation Day will be:

10:30-11:00: Arrival and coffee/tea

13:00-14:15: Dr Rebecca Watson (presentation + brief response + questions and answers)

Dr Rebecca Watson is a Research Associate of The Faraday Institute for Science and Religion, Cambridge. Her research has focused on 'the sea in Scripture', as she has conducted a study of the biblical material on the oceans in order to develop a biblical theology of the sea. The aim is to apply this to how Christians should treat the ocean, the creatures living in it and the resources it contains.

Dr Elizabeth Theokritoff is a Research Associate at the Institute for Orthodox Christians Studies, Cambridge for which she has frequently lectured since its inception. She has had a particular interest in ‘theological ecology’ since 1988-9, when she served as visiting Orthodox Tutor at the Ecumenical Institute, Bossey, Switzerland, for the Graduate School on ‘Justice, peace and the integrity of creation’. Dr Theokritoff is co-editor of the Cambridge Companion to Orthodox Christian Theology and author of ‘Living in God’s Creation: Orthodox Perspectives on Ecology’ (St Vladimir’s Seminary Press), as well as numerous articles and book chapters on Orthodoxy and ecology and liturgical theology.
