Sophia Institute’s NINTH Annual International Conference @ Sophia Institute at Union Theological Seminary | New York | New York | United States
THE MYSTICAL THEOLOGY OF THE EASTERN CHURCH Registration 8.00 am The Day-long gathering will focus on the various ways the Eastern Orthodox Church, over past centuries and in recent times, has approached the dominant and central theme of spiritual transcendence. The Conference title clearly evokes the work of Vladimir Lossky, whose study of this name was so influential in opening up to the wider Christian world aspects of the inner spiritual traditions of Orthodoxy. Our approach to the concept will probably follow a wider arc: considering the Orthodox world’s approach to spirituality through philosophy, theology, asceticism, literature, monastic and lay prayer traditions, as well as liturgy. Correlated themes such as the evocation of a transcendent ethos in Church architecture and art are equally possible ways of approaching the notion: as clearly are also ethical and political avenues of enquiry. We will cover a time span from The New Testament, through Byzantium, to contemporary Church life. For[...]

Lesvos at the Crossroads: The Soundscape of a Late Ottoman Island A concert of music from the 1906 Kerekoglow collection with a slide show of the manuscript and period photos. The concert program, arranged, performed, and narrated by Harvard ethnomusicologist Panayotis League and his ensemble, is exclusively sourced from a rare manuscript collection that was compiled in 1906 by an Ottoman Greek musician on the island of Lesvos and brought to Lynn, Massachusetts during the First Balkan War. A fascinating musical snapshot of the soundscape of turn-of-the century Ottoman Lesvos, the collection contains island dances, Ottoman art songs, European polkas and tangos, Romanian horas, and other pieces popular among the Greek, Turkish, Jewish, Armenian, and Levantine population of the island and the Asia Minor coast. This music is a timely reminder of the pluralistic character of the late Ottoman world, and a sonic memorial to the refugees who, whether in[...]
