Topic: “What is the Bible? The Patristic Doctrine of Scripture”
Join us in Princeton for dialogue, learning, and fellowship. Now in its third year, the “Florovsky Symposium” is known for combining churchly piety with high-level scholarly inquiry. It attracts a large and diverse cohort of established scholars, clergy, graduate students, and seminarians from around the country and the world.
The purpose of this year’s symposium is to re-open a consideration of the doctrine of Scripture for contemporary theology rooted in the tradition of the Fathers (Greek, Latin, and Oriental), an endeavor inspired by the theological vision of the 20th century’s foremost Orthodox Christian theologian, Fr. Georges Florovsky. That is: our interest is not in mere description of historical uses of Scripture or interpretive methods, but rather in the very nature of Scripture itself and its place within the whole economy of creation, revelation, and salvation. The symposium is organized by the Fr. Georges Florovsky Orthodox Christian Theological Society at Princeton University and the School of Christian Vocation and Mission at Princeton Theological Seminary.
We are offering a special reduced rate for everyone who registers before December 1, 2012: only $35 per person. This includes continental breakfast and lunch on Saturday, as well as program materials, tuition, and refreshments throughout the two days. Dinner on Friday night will not be provided. The schedule will allow ample time for groups to patronize one of the many eateries in downtown Princeton, all within easy walking distance of the symposium’s proceedings.
