The 28th Methodological Seminar "Bible. Art. War"

April 1, 2022

The 28th Methodological Theological Seminar of the Eastern European Institute of Theology will be held on April 1, 2022 online (ZOOM).

We want to remind you that the general topic of our methodological seminars in 2021-2022 is "The Bible in the Modern World." The main goal is to explore different approaches to interpreting Scripture and establish the links and interactions between the interpretation of Scripture and scientific discoveries, cultural trends, and important events in society.

The topic of this seminar is "Bible. Art. War." Art and theology have always been in dialogue with each other and with the most profound questions of human existence. Yet, today, people are experiencing trials of war and injustice, accompanied by constant anxiety and pain. Does theology respond to human suffering, and can art offer an actual path to healing?
