Public lecture series in Ecclesiology: “Public Theology” by Professor Cyril Hovorun

Next week, on the 15th April, at 13.00 (CET), professor Cyril Hovorun will present the next lecture in our spring lecture series focusing on the nature and role of the Church. In his lecture, which follows on from his previous lecture on critical ecclesiology, professor Hovorun imagines the Church as a sage coming to the agora, the ancient public  ‘marketplace’ of ideas and resources. Ony there, in the public space, can the Church truly see itself, as in a mirror, and understand how well its ‘human’ performance truly reflects its divine identity and so realise its full potential and accomplish its mission. Professor Hovorun will argue that in a sense, therefore, any ecclesiology is public by default: there cannot be proper ecclesiology which is not public.

These lectures are compulsory for Pastoral-pedagogical, Religious Educator program students, MA students in Eastern Christian Studies and MA students in International Relations and Ecumenism, but we encourage all of our students to take part. Students will be able to find the link to the lecture on Canvas.

These are public lectures and open to anyone who wishes to take part. If you would like to watch the lecture online, please fill in the form below and send it back to us with your email address. We will send a Zoom link to you 30 minutes before the lecture begins.

Here is the link to the form.

We’ll do our best to make the lectures available to the public online. We intend to film the lectures, so the lectures will be available later on the Sankt Ignatios College YouTube channel.
