Public Seminar: Christian Perspectives on the Environment

Public Seminar: Christian Perspectives on the Environment

After his first visit, in 2014, the esteemed friend of St Andrew's, Professor Jonathan Wooding (Sir Warwick Fairfax Professor of Celtic Studies, The University of Sydney) returns to the College this semester. Prof. Wooding will offer the main address of a seminar hosted by the College entitled Christian Perspectives on the Environment.

After introductory remarks by Dr Philip Kariatlis (Academic Director and Senior Lecturer in Systematic Theology), on 'Orthodox Initiatives on Environmental Issues,' the distinguished guest will talk about 'Saints and Nature in the Celtic Tradition.' Prof. Wooding's talk will be followed by comments on the Eastern monastic perspectives on the environment, offered by Protopresbyter Dr Doru Costache (Senior Lecturer in Patristic Studies).

The seminar will take place on Thursday 12 May (6:30-9:00pm), primarily for the undergraduate and postgraduate students enrolled in the College's introductory theology unit. Given its significance, however, as a sequel to St Andrew's Inaugural Theology Symposium (2015), broader audiences will have free access to the seminar. There will also be time for Q & A.
