A Symposium in Honor of Metropolitan Kallistos of Diokleia: England @ Madingley Hall  | Cambridge | England | United Kingdom
Theme: “Rightly Dividing the Word of Truth” This conference is being held in honour of Metropolitan Kallistos of Diokleia who in September 2014 celebrates his eightieth birthday. He has been Chairman of the Friends of Mount Athos since the society’s foundation in 1990 and its President since 2000. Variously referred to as ‘the voice of Orthodoxy in the West’, ‘the closest approximation to an Athonite elder outside Athos’, and ‘the leading theologian in the Orthodox Church today’, Bishop Kallistos stands for many different things for many different people, but for every one of us he is a very special person. In its silver jubilee year the society calls on its members to join together in saluting the contribution of its internationally renowned leader and to listen to a series of presentations by his former students, colleagues, and friends.
