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.

The Seminary will host author and syndicated radio host Krista Tippett for a public lecture that will bring out her own experience in seeking and finding spiritual wisdom in unexpected places, most notably through the core value of beauty.
Ms. Tippett is a Peabody Award-winning broadcaster and New York Times best-selling author. In 2014 she received the National Humanities Medal at the White House for “thoughtfully delving into the mysteries of human existence. On the air and in print, Ms. Tippett avoids easy answers, embracing complexity and inviting people of every background to join her conversation about faith, ethics, and moral wisdom.”
Before her lecture, Ms. Tippett will speak to the seminary community about intentional engagement with the wider public on spiritual and religious themes.

To mark the ecclesiastical new year, St. Vladimir’s Seminary will host a lecture on Orthodoxy and ecology by Dr. Elizabeth Theokritoff. The lecture is sponsored by St. Herman’s Society for Orthodox Ecology, a student group at St. Vladimir’s Seminary. Members of St. Herman’s Society selected the date to coincide with the ecclesiastical new year because His All-Holiness, Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew of Constantinople, has designated this date as a day dedicated to environmental protection.
