Drinking from the Hidden Fountain: Thinking and Living with the Patristic Heritage
Presented by the Metropolitan Andrey Sheptytsky Institute
Workshop speakers, worship opportunities, and in-person community. The perfect antidote to isolation!
At the heart of the Eastern Christian tradition is the first millennium of Christianity. This period, its figures, and its controversies determine the theology, worship, and spirituality that Eastern Christians are submerged in today. MASI’s 2022 Study Days dives deep into this wellspring and offers a community of prayer and fellowship guided by these sacred texts under the direction of world class speakers and scholars of Early Christianity.
