THE SECOND ANNUAL SYMPOSIUM IN HONOR OF FR GEORGES FLOROVSKY
THE BODY OF THE LIVING CHRIST: THE PATRISTIC DOCTRINE OF THE CHURCH
CALL FOR PAPERS
Deadline for abstracts: Friday, June 3, 2011
The Second Annual Symposium in Honor of Fr Georges Florovsky will be held at Princeton University and Princeton Theological Seminary on Friday, February 10 and Saturday, February 11, 2012.
Inspired by Fr Georges Florovsky’s well known essay, “Le corps du Christ vivant: Une interprétation orthodoxe de l’Église,” we will examine the doctrine of the Church in some of the same authorities upon which Florovsky relied. Please check our website for details, including the confirmed plenary speakers: http://www.princeton.edu/~florov/patristic_symposium.html
Interested scholars and graduate students are invited to submit abstracts of papers on the symposium’s theme, especially on subjects not covered in the plenary addresses. Papers that address the doctrine of the Church in Scripture, hymnography, the Syriac Fathers, and in more recent figures, including those from Byzantium, Russia, and the 20th century, are most welcome.
The abstract should be no more than 500 words, have a clear thesis, and demonstrate the author’s knowledge of the relevant sources. All papers will be limited to 20 minutes in length and will be considered for publication in the symposium’s proceedings.
Please direct any inquiries or submit your abstract by e-mailing the Symposium Committee at firstname.lastname@example.org.
