Methexis Institute’s Inaugural Conference – Church & Academy: Deepening Our Dialogue

We here announce the arrival of our sister institution in the United States as well as the inaugural conference entitled “Church & Academy: Deepening our Dialogue”:

The Methexis Institute, [1] based in Charlottesville, Virginia.

“Methexis means participation. Our sharing and exchanging with each other and with the natural world is rooted in our sharing in and symbolization of God. This is the basis for any true cultural order, without which, as we see today, society falls apart and the environment  is severely damaged. The Methexis Institute is committed to upholding and restoring this order.”

– John Milbank

INAUGURAL CONFERENCE

CHURCH & ACADEMY:
DEEPENING OUR DIALOGUE

APRIL 4 & 5, 2019
CHARLOTTESVILLE, VIRGINIA

ABOUT THE CONFERENCE

The Methexis Institute’s inaugural conference initiates an effort to deepen the dialogue between Church and academy – seeking clarity and generativity. Leading clergy, laity, and scholars from different backgrounds and areas of expertise will gather to interact (formally and informally) and explore ways to bring more Church into our scholarship and more scholarship into our Church – disclosing wisdom through the Church and beauty in the world.

The Methexis Institute [1] is delighted to collaborate with Mars Hill Audio [3] – hosting Alison Milbank as the presenter for this spring’s Areopagus Lecture Series [4].
