LECTURE The New Martyrs: History and Trauma at a Greek Orthodox Monastery on Lesvos: Clinton, MA @ Museum of Russian Icons

This presentation will focus on the unique history and rituals of the Monastery of Sts. Raphael, Nicholas, and Irene on the island of Lesvos. One of the most visited pilgrimage sites in the Orthodox world, the monastery is particularly interesting in the way it structures its story in relation to historical trauma, religious faith, and Modern Greek “national consciousness.” Christopher Halali is currently a MALS student in Cultural Studies at Dartmouth College. His thesis research is focused on the Monastery of Sts. Raphael, Nicholas and Irene.
