Tuesday, Aug. 29 at 7:00 PM – “When the Bishops Took Charge: The Council of Nicea and Its Sisters”:
With the passing of the general authorities of the ancient Church (the apostles), local authorities (bishops) and eventually emperors felt obliged to step into the leadership vacuum. Lacking organized quorums, they convened councils, which functioned rather like political conventions. All of the seven “ecumenical councils” of ancient Christendom met in what is today Turkey. In the absence of revelation, the debates and the voting in these councils drew on scripture mingled with (mostly Middle Platonic) philosophy to define doctrines and enforce unity—with results that continue until our day.
April 24 at 7:30PM (pre-recorded) – “The Second Rome: The Beauty and Culture of Byzantium”:
No one in Late Antiquity or the Middle Ages called themselves “a Byzantine.” Instead, Byzantine is a relatively modern term used by scholars to differentiate the Greek-speaking, Christian culture of the Eastern Roman Empire from its earlier predecessor. The name comes from the strategically-located Greek colony of Byzantium, which Constantine later made his capital, expanding it in A.D. 324 and renaming it after himself as Constantinople. Until the city’s fall in 1453, and even beyond during the centuries of Ottoman Turkish occupation, its inhabitants still called themselves Rhomaioi or “Romans,” but it was a new, unique Christian culture. Just as Constantinople literally bridged Europe and Asia, Byzantium combined the west and the east, producing a rich culture that produced stunning architecture, mosaics, other art, and a deep spirituality that still persists in Eastern Orthodoxy.
