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.

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. The event is free and open to the public, and fresh popcorn will be served!

Hellenic Studies at Princeton: The Stanley J. Seeger Hellenic Fund
Established in 1979, the Program in Hellenic Studies aims to strengthen scholarship, teaching and research in all aspects of Byzantine and Modern Greek civilization, while exploring their relations to the classical tradition and the Late Antique world.
The Program operates with the support of the Stanley J. Seeger Hellenic Fund, which was established by the generosity of Stanley J. Seeger ’52 in order to “advance the understanding of the culture of ancient Greece and its influence…and to stimulate creative expression and thought in and about modern Greece.”

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.

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.
Docent Jim Flynn offers a closer look at the Museum’s collection of icons of the Virgin Mary, and their presentation and significance in Russian culture and religion, from the coming of Christianity in the 10th century to post-Soviet Russia in the 21st.
The Liturgical Arts Academy is a one-week intensive program to teach the skills of Byzantine Chanting and Iconography in an atmosphere of prayer, study, discussion and communion.
