Second series of online lectures "Time for Action"

Theophilos Ambatzidis:

THE INDIVIDUALIZATION OF SALVATION AND THE ISSUE OF INSTITUTION AND CHARISMA
IN THE WORK OF ST SYMEON THE NEW THEOLOGIAN
(on the occasion of the millennium from his dormition, 1022-2022)

The lecture of Theophilos Ambatzidis "The individualization of salvation and the issue of institution and charisma in the work of Saint Symeon the New Theologian" inaugurates the second series of online lectures "Time for Action", planned by Volos Academy for Theological Studies for the first half of 2022. The lecture will take place on Wednesday, January 26, 2022, 19:00 EET (Athens time), and will be accessible through the Zoom platform, at the address https://us06web.zoom.us/j/88291866067 . Due to the extreme weather conditions in Athens, this lecture will be in Greek only.

The lecturer, through an analysis of the social, cultural and political conditions in which Saint Symeon lived and acted, will attempt a deeper understanding of the theological thought, of the general personality of the saint and also of the influence exerted by his creative contribution, culminating in a critical approach of him as a pioneer of the transition of Orthodoxy and of the social life of the Eastern Christian World into a phase of individualization, which took place during the period of the "Early Byzantine Humanism" and which lays the foundations of modern Hellenism. The lecture commemorates the millennium from the dormition of Saint Symeon (1022-2022).

Theophilos Ambatzidis was born in Ptolemaida, Greece, in 1968. He studied at the Faculty of Theology of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki. He received his Master's and Doctoral Degree in Systematic Theology from the same University. During the years 1995-1997, he collaborated as a researcher in the program of the Academy of Athens "Hellenism and Christianity as factors shaping the Greek identity". He was the Editor-in-Chief of the magazine Analogion, published by the Holy Metropolis of Kozani. From September 2001 until today he works in Secondary Education and from the academic year 2004 until today he is a Scientific Associate of Volos Academy for Theological Studies. He has published books, articles and studies in various journals and collective volumes.

All the online events of the series "Time for Action" are video-recorded, webcasted and then uploaded in the Volos Academy Youtube Channel https://www.youtube.com/user/VolosAcademy/
