Return Visit of Dr Anna Silvas, FAHA

Return Visit of Dr Anna Silvas, FAHA

On Friday 24 October 2014, Dr Anna Silvas, FAHA, a great friend of the College from the University of New England (Armidale NSW), will offer a series of two talks at St Andrew's:

  • 10.00am-11.00am, "Nexus of Greek, Syriac and Latin Christianity: St Basil the Great's Small Asketikon"
  • 11.30am-12.30pm, "Was St Basil the Great a mystic? Was he a mystical theologian?"

The first presentation will be illustrated by an icon ''written'' for this occasion by master iconographer Michael Galovic. The icon represents Saint Basil, the author of the Asketikon, flanked by Saint Eusebius of Samosata, its translator into Syriac, and Blessed Rufinus of Aquilea, its translator into Latin. During this event, Dr Silvas will also be introducing her latest book, Basil of Caesarea: Questions of the Brothers. The event is open to the public and will be moderated by Protopresbyter Dr Doru Costache. It will take place in the College's main hall. To RSVP, contact the Registrar.
