During the third day of the conference a study trip to the female Trappist Monastery of Poličany took place, where an expert exposition on the current forms of monastic life, and its history in Czech Republic was provided.

The Volos Academy for Theological Studies was represented by Dr. Nikolaos Asproulis (Deputy Director of Volos Academy and Lecturer, Hellenic Open University): “Ecclesial and Secular Images of Holiness in the 21st Century,” and Mr. Giorgos Vlantis (Director, Council of Christian Churches in Bavaria, Germany, and Academic Associate of Volos Academy): “Images of Holiness that do Harm.”
