Recovering Hymnography Symposium


Recovering Hymnography Symposium

May 15-16, 2022 | Please see details at Lumen Christi site

Free and open to the public. Please note you must register for each day separately.

This symposium will explore the tradition of hymnography as both prayer and pedagogy, sharing insights about how biblical interpretation, ethical injunction, and theological reflection are combined with ritual reenactment in the texts they consider. Papers on early Christian liturgical hymnography in the Greek, Syriac, and Latin traditions will be shared and discussed with expert respondents. In so doing, the presenting scholars will shed light on the late antique Christian world’s practice of hymnography that is still preserved today by contemporary Eastern Christian worship.

Starts: May 15, 2022
Ends: May 17, 2022
Time: 9:35 AM - 10:35 AM
