Feb 15 – Jun 3 all-day
Rushnyk: Sacred Ukrainian Textiles,Museum of Russian Icons: Clinton, MA @ Museum of Russian Icons  | Clinton | Massachusetts | United States

The Museum is pleased to announce its next exhibition–Rushnyky: Sacred Ukrainian Textiles. Opening February 15, 2018, the exhibition celebrates and explores Ukrainian culture through one of its most ancient and valued traditions.

A rushnyk is a long, rectangular cloth, typically made from linen or hemp, which is woven in one solid piece and sometimes adorned with bright, intricate patterns. They are traditionally made by women, who start learning to spin, weave, and embroider the cloths at a very young age. Today most rushnyky are machine made using modern materials, and can be purchased in retail establishments.

Film and Lecture: Confronting Amnesia-Frozen Memories of the Russian Gulag: Clinton, MA
Apr 21 @ 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm
Film and Lecture: Confronting Amnesia-Frozen Memories of the Russian Gulag: Clinton, MA @ Museum of Russian Icons | Clinton | Massachusetts | United States

This gripping documentary draws a straight line from the Great Terror unleashed by Joseph Stalin from 1929 until his death in 1953 to the current desire to cover over and forget this monumental abuse of human rights. While the older generation tries to resurrect the image of Stalin as a national hero, the younger generation has seriously questioned and honestly confronted this dark past. Through the courageous and inspirational work of the human rights group Memorial in Russia, this next generation will begin to understand the past in order to create a healthier future.

Prof. John Michalczyk, Co-Director of Film Studies at Boston College and one of the producers of the documentary, will talk about key events in the history of the gulag, and lead an audience discussion.

The documentary was primarily filmed in Siberia, Moscow, Perm, and St. Petersburg with a host of survivors, historians, and human rights activists. Confronting Amnesia reflects the conflicting narratives on this history in Russia today, as it attempts to move toward a more democratic government, despite its recent political setbacks.

One hundred years after the Russian (Bolshevik) Revolution of 1917, a documentary movie recently produced and released by Catholic News Service chronicles both the ruin of the Russian Orthodox Church during that time and the rebirth of the Church following the fall of the Soviet Union in 1991.

The movie, Faces among Icons, will be shown on our campus and followed by a panel discussion. The producer of the movie, Robert Duncan, a Rome-based Catholic filmmaker, will attend the screening, and will be a panel participant, along with select seminary faculty and students.

CFP: Step by Step Towards the Sacred: Brno, Czech Republic

CFP: Step by Step Towards the Sacred:  Brno, Czech Republic @ Hans Belting Library  | Brno | South Moravian Region | Czechia

Step by Step towards the Sacred: Ritual, Movement and Images in the Middle Ages

The conference aims to reflect on the ways medieval images – ranging from Late Antiquity to the 14th century and across wide span of media – were comprehended and activated through the motions of participants in diverse religious rituals. At the core of these reflections is the moving body, whether individual or collective, which enters into dialogue with the surrounding space (architectural or urban), objects and images, thus awaking their sacred potentiality through each and every step.

Legal Pluralism and Social Change in Late Antiquity and the Middle Ages
May 17 – May 19 all-day
Legal Pluralism and Social Change in Late Antiquity and the Middle Ages @ Princeton University, 211 Dickinson Hall | Princeton | New Jersey | United States

A conference in honor of Professor John Haldon, The Trustees of Princeton University ·

Throughout his career, Professor John Haldon has been a hinge between different academic cultures, methods, and disciplines. A true scholar of Byzantine society, he has combined meticulous work on texts and material evidence with a holistic approach to social history that has connected the study of the Byzantine world to new methodological perspectives and ever wider horizons for comparison with other political systems and structures across the European and Islamic worlds, from late ancient to early modern times. This conference will take stock of Haldon’s approach by focusing on the history of law and legal culture in the transformation of the Roman world.
