Theology and Philosophy in Byzantium: “Meeting at Highest Level”

How did philosophy and religion meet in Byzantium? How did ancient ideas about beauty and virtue flow into Christian ethics? And how did Socratic “trolling” become the ground for heresies?

A new video on the musicAeterna digital platform features a lecture on “meetings at highest level” in the intellectual life of the Eastern Roman Empire, delivered by Igor Ivanov, Head of the Modern Languages Department and Associate Professor of the Theology Department at the Saint Petersburg Theological Academy, editor-in-chief of the scientific journal Proceedings and Translations.
