CSWR Upcoming Events - Eros and Agape in the Orthodox Tradition


Tuesday, February 19, 2019, 5:30pm


Room 422, History of Art and Architecture, The Sackler Building, 485 Broadway, Cambridge, MA 02138


Professor Stamoulis explores Orthodox Christian approach to the senses, eros, and art. Orthodox theological aesthetics have long been shrouded by pre-Christian and early Christian anthropologies that demonize erotic love, sexuality, desire, and pleasure. Stamoulis traces the textual roots of this demonization and juxtaposes them with the Song of Songs, the works of John Chrysostom, Basil of Ancara, and Symeon the New Theologian, and their appreciation of erotic passion and divine love.
