Σύγχρονοι Πατέρες & Μητέρες της Εκκλησίας

Το Ινστιτούτο Ορθόδοξων Χριστιανικών Σπουδών, που εδρεύει στο Κέϊμπριτζ της Αγγλίας ανακοινώνει τις Κοινωνικές του Διαλέξεις για το 2016.

We have the pleasure to announce our new annual series of Community Lecture Days for 2016. We continue to address themes of major importance for both the Orthodox tradition and the Christian world, and, this year, the series of Community Lecture Days is entitled ‘CONTEMPORARY FATHERS AND MOTHERS OF THE CHURCH: GUIDES FOR TODAY’S WORLD’.

From February to June, on the last Saturday of each month, participants have the opportunity to attend two lectures – one in the morning and one in the afternoon. A relaxed lunch and refreshments in between the lectures will allow the time and opportunity to meet old friends and make new ones, and continue the discussion. As usual, we conclude the day with a Vespers service.

For the first time ever, people will now have the possibility to attend the lectures live on their computers, for a smaller fee.
 No additional software or programmes will need to be installed - participants will simply be sent a link, and by clicking on it they will be able to watch the lectures live, but also to contribute questions or comments during the Q&A session. If you are interested to participate on-line just drop us an email.

This year's dates and lecturers are:

1. 20th February: Revd Dr Seraphim Aldea on
 Father Sophrony Sakharov.
2. 19th March: Dr Krastu Banev on Saint Maria of Paris (Skoptsova).
3. 16th April: Revd Dr Danut Manastireanu on Father Dumitru Staniloae. 
4. 21st May: Irina Kirillova MBE on Metropolitan Anthony of Sourozh.
5. 18th June: Karen Hetherington on Saint Macarius Glukharev and Saint Macarius Nevsky.

While an attendance fee is applicable (please see attached poster), we are delighted to announce that students can attend free of charge. As ever, the Institute does not wish finance to be an obstacle. If you would like to come but are unable to pay the whole fee please get in touch with us.

Every Community Day will take place at the Institute's headquarters: Palamas House, 25-27 High Street Chesterton, Cambridge, CB4 1NQ
