Lecture Events Series 2017: Greece
Mar 28 – Jun 30 all-day
Lecture Events Series 2017: Greece @ Varied | Greece

The 2017 Events Series will be devoted to “Societies in crisis: economy, politics, culture.” This year’s cycle will include 7 lectures that will begin on December 14, 2016 and continue through June 2017. Four lectures will take place in Nafplio, one in Argos, one in Ligourio and one in Thessaloniki.

These lectures will feature historical examples of economic, political or cultural crisis in societies established in the wider Greek world from antiquity to the present day. The timelessness of the topic and its various manifestations indicate that the “crisis” is a recurring, and yet ever-changing phenomenon of societies. Distinguished speakers from Greece and abroad will analyze aspects of this phenomenon, with the assistance of their respondents, and will help us thus understand its causes and historical perspectives.

2017 St. Mary’s Fellowship Annual Pan-Orthodox Lenten Retreat: Brooklyn, NY
Apr 1 @ 9:00 am – 3:30 pm

Slow To Anger: Anger is a very powerful emotion. Everyone deals with anger differently. We are all affected by it personally, and especially now, globally. In James 1: 19-20, we are taught My dear brothers and sisters, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry, 20because human anger does not produce the righteousness that God desires.”

Join us as we explore the dynamics of this topic presented by father/daughter team Dr. John Dalack & Khouriyee Laila Ellias

Featuring Teen Breakout Session- “We are all Prodigal Sons and Daughters: Spiritual Direction for Teens and Young Adults.” Presented by Fr. Michael Ellias

Lecture: NY
Apr 3 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Lecture: NY @ Fordham University, Rose Hill Campus | O’Hare Special Collections Room | Walsh Library 4th Floor |  | New York | United States

“A Syriac Non-Orthodox View of Seventh-Century Events in the Near East”: Lecture by Muriel Debié,
Professor at the École Pratique des Hautes Études in Paris, is currently a Fellow at the Institute for Advanced Studies. She is a world-renowned expert in Syriac Studies, and particularly of Syriac historiography.

Syriac non-orthodox literature offers a different view of the seventh century from the one presented by Byzantine Orthodox and Islamic sources. Questioning the Sasanid and then Arab “conquests” as well as the “canonized” periodization, this lecture will share how the perspective of the seventh century offered by Syriac texts adds a different understanding of what we still perceive today as a turning point in the history of the region and the world.

This lecture is part of the Syriac Studies Series of the Orthodox Christian Studies Center of Fordham University, with additional support provided by the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences and the Department of Theology of Fordham University.

Light refreshments provided.  Registration requested: fordham.edu/orthodoxy

Lecture: Cambridge, MA
Apr 3 @ 6:15 pm – 7:45 pm
Lecture: Cambridge, MA @ Harvard Faculty Club Address:  | Cambridge | Massachusetts | United States

“Christian Bodies, Pagan Images: Women, Beauty, and Morality in Byzantium”. Alicia Walker explores how Byzantine women’s bodies were put in dialogue with visual and textual portrayals of pagan goddesses and heroines, and how these practices changed in fundamental ways from the early to middle Byzantine eras.
