International Conference: Orthodox Christian Political Theologies: History, Development, Specificities, Contextualisation 26. - 28. April 2018 Mainz

The international conference »Orthodox Christian Political Theologies: History, Development, Specificities, Contextualisation«, organised by Vasilios N. Makrides (Erfurt, University) and Mihai-D. Grigore (IEG), brings together experts on the topic from Germany and abroad. It aims at filling a research gap by examining Orthodox political theologies from a systematic, interdisciplinary and broader perspective. The focus is on the historical evolvement of political theological discourses in Orthodox Christianity across time, from the fourth century until today. The conference will be also examining the historical background of Orthodox political theologies and their numerous forms, considering and analysing the specific parameters and factors that shaped them across time. The contributors attempt to locate and critically evaluate the reasons accounting for the specificities and particularities of Orthodox political theologies across history, as well as to contextualise the entire issue, first by comparing Orthodox with Western Christian political theologies, and second by looking at forms of political theologies in other contexts – beyond Christianity and the West.
