Image, Idol, Christ at Baylor University

On February 18th, Dmitri will be taking part in an ecumenical symposium on the meaning of sacred images at Baylor University. The conversation will address "the distinctive positions each communion takes on images, why images have divided us, and what ecumenical hope there is for a common life with images in the church universal. "

The featured talks, followed by a general discussion, will be:

"Against Confessional Aesthetics,"  by Matthew Milliner, Assistant Professor of Art History at Wheaton College   representing a Reformed Protestant view.

"Corpus Domini, the Lord's Body as the Salivific Image", by Carole Baker, student of Doctoral Studies in Theology at Duke University,  representing Roman Catholic teaching.

"ICON, the Tradition of Symbolic Realism", by Dmitri Andreyev, Instructor in the Prosopon School of Iconology, representing Orthodox Christian tradition.
