Σχίσμα στην Ορθοδοξία

Μια πολύ ενδιαφέρουσα διημερίδα διοργανώνεται από το Ινστιτούτο Ορθόδοξων Χριστιανικών Σπουδών στο Κέϊμπριτζ, σύμφωνα με την παρακάτω επίσημη ανακοίνωση:

The Institute for Orthodox Christian Studies (IOCS) offers a two-day Summer School, which will take place from 30-31 August 2019 at Wesley House in Cambridge. This taught course is open to everyone and discusses the topic of 'Community, Difference and Division in the Orthodox Church'.

The team of lecturers will include: Metropolitan Kallistos Ware, Revd Prof Andrew Louth, Revd Dr John Jillions, Revd Prof Nikolaos Loudovikos, Dr Elizabeth Theokritoff, Revd Dragos Herescu, Dr Razvan Porumb, Dr Christoph Schneider.

The Summer School will address the following questions: 

·        How are we to understand the unity of the Church and what are the main characteristics of the ecclesial community?

·        What is the theologically correct understanding of creaturely differences within the ecclesial community?

·        How can we distinguish between positive differences that need to be preserved and cultivated, and destructive divisions that need to be overcome?

·        What is the relationship between the Church, cultural diversity and historical change?

All participants will be asked to do some preparatory reading before the Summer School starts. Texts will be made available prior to the course. Apart from lectures, there will be time for guided discussions and student presentations. Participation is open to everyone, but some basic theological knowledge about Orthodox theology is required to profit from the course. All participants will be given a Certificate confirming the successful completion of the Summer School. The level of teaching roughly corresponds to a second- or third-year BA course.

Participation fees are as follows:

Conference enrolment (2 days) – with lunch + coffee/tea during breaks – £120

Conference enrolment (2 days) – Student discount – with lunch + coffee/tea during breaks – £70

Conference enrolment for 1 day – with lunch + coffee/tea during breaks – £70

You can book a place either by paying the full fee, or by paying a non-refundable pre-enrolment fee of £50.
