Oxford University is organizing a conference titled ‘Unfading Light. Creativity & Prayer in 20th Century Russian Orthodoxy’ on 7th March 2019 and 8th March 201.

The theme of the Conference 
The conference aims to explore the divergent progressions of thought form late 19th century Russian ‘traditionalism’ towards a (re)discovery of the universal dimension of the Christianity of the Fathers in the 20th century; from the narrow constraints of the Russian Academy to an openness towards some more fertile currents of Western thought; from a Russian ‘fin de siècle’ fascination with non-Christian oriental mysticism to Eastern Orthodox hypostatic prayer within an ascesis of deified personhood.
